Wood Release (木遁, Mokuton, Viz: Wood Style) is the combined Nature Transformation bloodline of the Hō-ō Clan that appears selectively among its members in each generation. It is created by combing Earth and Water-based Chakra, allowing the users to freely create and manipulate wood and plant-life. Wood Release techniques are most commonly affiliated with the Snake seal.
Wood Release combines the firmness of Earth and the fluidity of Water, giving the users the ability to create, shape, and fully manipulate agriculture i.e. plantlife; including wood, vines, plants, moss, and parts of the plants, such as leaves, seeds, fruits and flowers. The user can force the wood and plants to grow, move/attack or even rise from the soil and "walk", mutate plants by rearranging DNA structure and revive withered or dead plants. The agriculture can be produced from virtually any surface, even the body's of the users and their targets as their Chakra is literally a source of life.
