The wood of the tree was surprisingly durable; the relatively thin trunk rarely broke, even when under extreme stress. They bent in winds and under snows, and in winter they could stabilize snow tunnels over roads that sheltered travelers. Blueleafs often grew in thick copses and typically reached heights of 40 feet (12 meters).
Blueleaf leaves and sap could be crushed to make a bright blue dye often used in clothing manufacture in the North. These could also be burned to produce vivid, jumping blue flames that were favored by minstrels and storytellers for special effects.
The wood of the blueleaf tree, known as bluewood, was used by Volodni craftsfolk to make weapons and armor. Bluewood was magically treated to become as hard as steel, though it weighed half as much.
