"Copperwood for beauty...A thousand different words, each with a tale to tell, a gift to give..."
Barkus Lumbergrove

Copperwoods were Deepwoods trees in the Third Order of Buoyant Wood with metallic wood that resembled copper. It was commonly used for decorative purposes or used for military and high-jumping helmets. In the Third Age of Flight, a district of Great Glade was named Copperwood for the many copperwood trees found in this region.

In the Edgeworld, copper ore and copperwood lumber existed. Both substances, when refined, produced copper.[1]


The reality of very different things yielding the same substance when processed and refined, such as copper ore and copperwood lumber is exemplified by sugar cane and sugar beet. Both result in granulated sugar.[1]
