The feather tree is a special tree that grows only in good aligned areas. Unlike other above ground trees, it yields cream colored logs when cut down.

It is also the lightest wood in the game, so it should be used for things that get hauled around very frequently, such as bins, barrels and buckets. This increases dwarf speed as they carry these items since they are carrying less weight.

Featherwood is useless for ammunition. Crossbow and ballista bolts will simply glance off enemies due to them weighing almost nothing.

It is often recommended to make featherwood crossbows for the fortress guard. Guards will shoot at goblins with the same efficiency they would with metal ones, but they will bash criminals with the butt of their feather-light weapons, rendering justice-administered beatings significantly less lethal.

Since damage from falling is affected by the material of the landing zone, featherwood proves useful to cushion falls and prevent serious injuries.

Beware the unicorns that roam around it, or simply import it from Elven caravans.
