Hey, I am confused here. Bark is different from wood. Bark is phloem and wood is stele :?

Well, maybe the function is... cork? :)


Oh ya :oops: I mean the bark and wood all parts contain it. its not just used for the wood (to make things with)
And yes I googled fabales to see and yea it is an order, I figured it was misspelled cause I didnt see it(my order) there :?
so then, order >fagales< that is the order :)

Aromatic wood, oil used topicaly for pain relief.

And was used to flaver gum and mints.
