Xylomancy was a subject that was taught at least once in the North Tower at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1] It involved the "often overlooked" method of divination which relied upon twigs.[2]

In 1926, the New York Ghost announced that Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was to start offering extracurricular Xylomancy classes.[3]
