Flora and Fauna | Trees

Ironwood trees are important in some regions as they can grow with their roots near, or even in lava. Their bark blackens and bakes iron-hard, protecting the nutrient and water transporting tissues within.

Ironwood doesn’t, however, refer to a single species - rather there are ironwood varieties representing a range of genuses, for example the Ironwood Oak, Ironwood Plum and Ironwood Sequoia, etc…

When it can be harvested, hardened ironwood bark can provide armour similar in character to studded leather. This ironwood armour is greatly valued in the tribal lands where metal is relatively scarce, and also by druids.
