Wood is the structural tissue that comprises the stems, branches, and roots of trees. The fibrous substance tends to be strong yet pliable, and as such it has been used throughout human history as a staple construction material.
Lumber and timber are terms for wood which has been processed into planks and beams.
Those working with wood were commonly called woodworkers, though carpenters and joiners were two separate occupations under that collective noun.
Early modern era
Pine and oak, particularly holm oak, were two of the most common kinds of wood used throughout Europe in the 15th and 16th centuries. Soldiers relied on pine for crafting arrows, shields, and war hammers but turned to holm oak for crossbow bolts, fire pots, and the poles of pikes. Oak, elm, and fir were used in the construction of ships like carracks. The frames of cannons were built with olive wood.
Behind the scenes
Wood is used as a crafting material across several Assassin's Creed games.
In Assassin's Creed: Project Legacy, several types of wood were available as material in crafting. These were pine, oak, holm oak, elm, fir, and olive wood, and they were needed for the construction of barricades, carracks, cannons, and various weapons. Players mainly acquired wood by farming Mario Auditore's memory "Lumbering" in Chapter 3.
