The grained wood of the tree heath (Erica arborea) is called briar root. The tree heath typically grows in the Mediterranean, in particular on La Gomera in the Canary Islands where it frequently grows to a massive 65 feet. Otherwise, it rarely exceeds 16-20 feet in height.
The wood is very hard and heavy. It is THE classic wood for carving tobacco pipes. After the harvest, it is boiled and then dried for months. In addition to its use in tobacco pipes, it is also used to make jewelry. It is really quite difficult to find larger, crack-free pieces.
