  • The Iron Branch is consumed in the process.
  • Cannot be placed inside the fountain area (including a small area in front of the ramp), or in Roshan icon.png Roshan's pit.
  • Creates a regular planted tree at the target point. This tree is smaller than the other trees on the map and has a smaller collision size.
    • This means it blocks vision and is treated like any other tree by all abilities which interact with trees.
    • The particles around the tree are visible to everyone, making it clear that it is a planted tree.
  • Tango icon.png Tango heals for twice as long when targeting an Iron Branch tree.


  • The item is used early game for a cheap boost of attributes and it is then made into a Magic Wand icon.png Magic Wand or sold.
  • Plant an Iron Branch to create a tree that traps or blocks enemy movement.
  • Due to how efficient the Iron Branch is gold-wise, it is a good idea, if you have spare inventory slots, to buy as many as you can. If you cannot micro the Animal Courier Radiant minimap icon.png Courier effectively, it is a good idea to leave one space for another item that you will get in the future.


  • In the original DotA, Iron Branch's full name was Ironwood Branch.
  • The happy little trees in the active ability description is a reference to Bob Ross, a popular painter who often used the phrase on his television program, The Joy of Painting.
  • The planted tree uses the same model as the Sprout trees and is surrounded by the same effects as a tree enchanted with Eyes In The Forest.
  • Typing in GG into the shop search bar will bring up the Iron Branch, in reference to their fan name of GG Branches due to DotA 1 giving them the description of Buying one of these will ensure a good game..
