Ironwood is a type of wood that is said to be as hard as iron and the largest Ironwood forest in Westeros is located on the edge of the Wolfswood, and is controlled by House Forrester, though they are careful to preserve Ironwood forests and trees, lest they run out. Although ironwood is nearly impervious to flame, it's said to only burn for Forresters. When burned it emits a blue flame around it. Ironwood is used for a various things, including ships and shields. Maesters at the Citadel are known to study it.

House Whitehill once had ironwood, but lost them due to irresponsible harvesting. Their sigil represents the barren hill on which their seat is situated - stripped bare of ironwood trees centuries ago.
