Saguaros are one of the least productive trees for the matter of wood. Cutting a saguaro generally does not give much wood, 2-3 on average.
Saguaros bear fruit for a relatively long period of time. This can be very useful in adventurer mode as the saguaro fruit can still be plucked and eaten long after other shrubs and trees have lost their fruits. In fortress mode, these fruit can be cooked, but not brewed.
Its solid density was determined empirically by DF players, as evidenced in the raws. There was no other public, online source of that information prior to Dwarf Fortress. Toady One received a "Birthday Artifact" in 2012 made out of Saguaro rib wood.
