A versatile technique where the user can produce sharp wooden spikes from their body to either fashion short-range weapons akin to a makeshift sword, or else use them as long-range projectiles, where the branches' growth can be triggered remotely, skewering the enemy as a result.
Obito Uchiha also demonstrated use of this technique via the Ten-Tails' tails, after he, and Madara Uchiha strengthened their control over the beast by connecting themselves to its body through the use of Hashirama Senju's cells.
- Cutting, also called striking or cloning, is a method of plant propagation. It involves cutting off a piece of a plant, usually the stem or root, which is then put in an appropriate medium. If done properly, the cut piece will grow into a new plant, genetically identical to the plant it was cut from.
