The Ironwood tree is native to most of the eastern US and it helped forge our world. American Indians used its wood to make shafts for arrows because of its strength. Europeans took advantage of its ability to withstand strong forces by making the yoke for their oxen out of it. Early American settlers used its brutally hard wood to make pegs for timber frame construction, wagon wheels, axles, tool handles and wooden mallets.
The Ironwood tree grows slowly but surely in the shadows of the big oaks and pines where its extremely hard wood and branch structure make it nearly impervious to damage that can harm the bigger less stable trees. While not as big or widely known as some of the larger trees, Ironwood has been called upon when its strength is needed.
