Thank you for the Harry Potter post here is some in formation from their website about wood for wands.
“The following description of the powers and properties of various wand woods are taken from notes made, over a long career, by Mr Garrick Ollivander, widely considered the best wandmaker in the world. As will be seen, Mr Ollivander believes that wand wood has almost human powers of perception and preferences.
Mr Ollivander introduces his notes on wand woods thus:
Every single wand is unique and will depend for its character on the particular tree and magical creature from which it derives its materials. Moreover, each wand, from the moment it finds its ideal owner, will begin to learn from and teach its human partner. Therefore, the following must be seen as general notes on each of the wood types I like to work with best, and ought not to be taken to describe any individual wand.
Only a minority of trees can produce wand quality wood (just as a minority of humans can produce magic). It takes years of experience to tell which ones have the gift, although the job is made easier if Bowtruckles are found nesting in the leaves, as they never inhabit mundane trees. The following notes on various wand woods should be regarded very much as a starting point, for this is the study of a lifetime, and I continue to learn with every wand I make and match.”
This was copied from the Pottermore(written by J.K.Rowling) Website: https://www.pottermore.com/writing-by-jk-rowling/wand-woods
The woods they named in the website are:
Acacia, Alder, Apple, Ash, Aspen, Beech, Blackthorn, Black Walnut, Cedar, Cherry, Chestnut, Cypress, Dogwood, Ebony, Elder, Elm, English Oak, Fir, Hawthorn, Hazel, Holly, Hornbeam, Larch, Laurel, Maple, Pear, Pine, Poplar, Red Oak, Redwood, Rowan, Silver lime, Spruce, Sycamore, Vine, Walnut, Willow, Yew

The forest is a MAGICAL place! Serendipity abounds. I am grateful to my girlfriends for introducing me to our forest walks up to Whyte Lake and Cypress Falls Canyon – the depth of bonding, processing and healing is profound!!
My daughter gave me a gem of a book for Christmas called The Hidden Life of Trees.
Here’s a review I’d like to share:
“You will never look at a tree the same way after reading Peter Wohlleben’s The Hidden Life of Trees, which reveals the mindboggling properties and behavior of these terrestrial giants. Read this electrifying book, then go out and hug a tree―with admiration and gratitude.” —―Dr. David Suzuki, co-founder of the David Suzuki Foundation, award-winning scientist, environmentalist, and broadcaster

It is believed that trees could have taken part in the extinction of dinosaurs. Flowering trees called angiosperms occurred too quickly on earth for the dinosaurs to adapt their diets. The rapid increase of the trees eventually took the land of the food they depended on. Over time they didn’t have enough food to sustain them any longer. 🙂

Hey! This blog is really cool.
Newspaper editor Julius Sterling Morton wasn’t afraid to think big. In 1855, he started building a modest four-room house in Nebraska City, Neb., that later expanded into a 52-room White House lookalike. But it was only after his mansion was finished that Morton realized he had a problem. His spacious new digs sat on a desolate prairie, which made it hard to attract neighbors.
So Morton went to work planting trees. Lots of them. To get a little help, the newspaperman proposed a holiday on which all Nebraskans would join in. The State Board of Agriculture loved the idea, and on April 10, 1872, Nebraskans planted more than a million trees! The tradition became so popular that in 1885, Nebraska made Arbor Day a legal holiday, even tweaking the date to April 26, Morton’s birthday. Soon the rest of the country was celebrating Morton’s brainchild, and today, tree planting days are celebrated around the world.
Morton’s effort earned him and his family some good karma too. He went on to serve as Secretary of Agriculture under Grover Cleveland, and his son, Joy, founded the Morton Salt Company.

Hey this blog is great I think it will inspire so many people to help with climate change! I travel a lot with family, and through travels I have been hiking through so many different forest environments such as the dense muddy forests in Newfoundland, or the tropical rain forests in St. Lucia.
I do agree that climate change is really important for ours and future generations, as I said before, I think your website will inspire many younger people to help with climate change, through planting trees or to help with fundraising.
Here is something interesting that I learned about trees when I was in Mexico. There is a tree in Mexico called the tourist tree because it’s bark is red and peels off. The brother of this tree is poisonous and the peeling bark of the tourist tree is said (by the Mayans) to calm the rash that the sap from the brother tree creates.

Hey TreesCO2.com is super cool. You are really making a difference by planting trees. Trees are amazing. They help everyone even if they don’t know it, from animals that depend on them for survival or humans who need trees for clean water and air. They also defend our atmosphere from the gases in the air and help even in the smallest ways, such as with the insects small trees take care of. I realized this when I was little. I was playing in my backyard by a small tree and I saw so much on it. There were ants, snails and bugs of all sorts. There was in just one little tree a lot of life. By the way did you know these cool facts that our teacher told me? A tree’s roots are as big as the tree’s branches. And what is super cool is that some species of trees help the same species of trees, for example if a sapling isn’t getting enough sunlight and energy an older tree getting plenty of energy will send their roots their energy to help the tree. Cool right?

I think this a great idea and this will improve the future of our next generation to help encourage our children not to be scared to step up and give their great ideas. A fun fact about trees is that A single 30-meter-tall mature tree can absorb as much as 22.7 kilograms (50 pounds) of carbon dioxide in a year

Trees are cool.My grandpa plants apple trees. Apple trees are part of the rose family and are best known for their sweetness. Apple trees are cultivated worldwide as a fruit tree. Apple trees originated from Central Asia.

What an amazing idea, Glad to see the work and effort that is being put into our future. Without trees how would we get our oxygen? Trees are such an important feature for our future. What an amazing idea!

So inspired by your efforts and enthusiasm in sharing the value of tree planting and caring.
This summer, I did not plant any trees, but took much time watering/caring for many in my garden (my little oasis) during the dry spell.
Earlier this summer, I fell in love with an old gnarly tree, which stood gracefully in my field of view. I was at a friend’s house on Pender Island overlooking the ocean, and felt this huge connection with a tree right in the middle of this spectacular ocean view. An experience I shall never forget.
I so appreciate all the clean air they provide , just one of many services they share with us humans.
So why not, hug a tree, you may be surprised by what you fee! : 0)
