Adlemir Trees are
among the tallest trees in the whole world, mainly common in
at the Sharadon Forest
and as far north as the Quallian.
If felled Adlemir produce an immense amount of
black hardwood timber which can be polished to an intense shine.
Ahrhillicia (also known as “Cillia Pine”, “Sun Nut Pine” or even “Landlord’s
Friend” in some less cultured circles) is a tall coniferous tree which is famous
for its rich, fatty pine nuts. Most of the
Almatrar Forest is populated with
these trees and the dense, shaded cover they provide makes an unusual and
difficult habitat for the plants below.
The Artapherana is a
name collectively used for four unique and fascinating trees which can be
found only upon the Efirhal Hill in
Milkengrad. Each one of them appears to represent one of the four
elements and has a personality of its own. A glow of colored light
emanates from each tree, according to its element and, when winds blow
from the Thaelon, a melody is heard,
sometimes sad, sometimes joyful. This melody has the ability to create
certain emotions to those who hear it and is used as a means of
Their individual names of the trees are Aeolerin, Nertelyx, Hydraloth and
Helpheran. The exact origin of the Artapherana is still unknown, but sages
in the 4th century a.S. connect them with the
League, a secret
elven guild that played an important
though subtle role in the Helcran
Cedar (also called "Deer Tree") is a scaly leaved evergreen tree that slowly
grows up to 11-14 peds. It
has conical and dense branches and a thin brown-red bark. Arvins Cedar's prefer
cool wet lowland areas by streams and swamps where it grows in dense stands. The
wood, which is slow to decay, is used to build boats, poles and roof shingles.
The aromatic leaf resin is used as an additive to perfumes and medicines. Lore
tells us that Arvins created the Cedar
once in order to protect the deer from their
predators and thus to ensure the balance of nature.
Canopine Tree is an evergreen tree of great beauty, aptly named for its canopy
of large needles. It is found nowhere except the steep slopes of the
Warnaka Mountains. No one really
knows why, but some botanists believe this is because it relies on the high lime
content of the soil and the high altitude the
Warnakas provides. Despite this it
is a relatively common tree in its native land. It has a stunning gold trunk and
lime green needles, these needles can refresh the internal body if eaten, they
are also excellent at healing burns and wounds (if applied correctly). Canopine
trees reproduce by scattering its seeds by the means of large ball shaped pine
cones, that crack open to disperse the seeds.
Cinnabark Pine is a giant conifer, with turquoise needles and shaggy red-brown
bark with a delicately fragrant spicy scent. Its bark is used as a sweet spice
to flavor many foods. This tree is highly responsive to wood-sorcery and
The great Great Council Tree of the
Brownies was created from a Cinnabark.
Cloewen Trees are evergreen, slow growing trees that
reach a height of about 4-5 peds when fully grown. Bark
is silver and smooth to the touch. They have large deep green waxy leaves which
are about the size of a spread palm. The trees are prized by the Ylfferhim
their magnificent large white (or ocassionally pale pink) sweet scented blooms
in spring and autumn. The elves often prune Cloewen into fantastic and beautiful
The Coastal Redwood is a massive
tree, standing at over 90 peds tall and at least 5 peds in diameter. Its
age is average of over 2000 years. Its name comes from its thick, fibrous
rust-red bark that defends it from fire.
The Coastal Redwood is a
beautiful and stately tree that has withstood the test of time, and has
run the gamut of all disasters and still holds firm. Its residing area is
quite small, living only in the coastal forests all over
Caelereth. It has smaller relatives
that live further inland,
but few have the height and girth of the Coastal Redwood.
Most important evergreen tree in
the drier parts of the Rahaz Dath. The name derives from Shen-Dar-Tree,
though this is not wide known. Up to ten peds tall, little yellow and
orange flowers which resemble in their arrangement a
Shendar Dome. Red berries
with an abundance of vitamins when ripe. Ripe before the occasional rain
arrives and are therefore a water resource for many insects and small
birds and mammals.
Survives where not many other plant can live due to roots which grow up to
50 peds into the depth of the ground to find water. Provides an own
ecosystem for many other plants and animals.
This tree is
dedicated to Eyasha, Goddess of Peace and
Unity, of Harmony, Tranquility and Contentment.
Growing in large packs
the Peace Pine requires sun, water and soil which is high in nurturance.
Generally used to decorate during various times of the year. The Peace Pine can range from 1 ped through to 30
and more peds in height depending on how long it is left to grow and the
quality of the soil in which it grows. The general shape of the tree is a
triangle with long branches at the bottom of the tree and shorter reaching ones
at the top until it finally reaches a tip.
in every form of the word, the great ice trees of the Iol are only definable by
myth interpretation. As such, some facts will be foggy and unclear for as long
as elf nor man
are omniscient. The Phéran'Exhonanhé (Styrásh
for "frozen-trees") are a very special species of tree in that they are ancient
beyond measure. Before they were frozen, they were anciently tall evergreen
trees akin to the coastland redwood. Though
not quite as tall as their cousins they reach an average of eighty
peds tall, and may be five
or more peds in diameter.
However, one can only speculate as to their age, because, for as far back as the
written history of the Evathonrhim extends the trees have been there, and not
far in to their history the trees were frozen in their current state. So the
trees have at least been there since 12000 b.S., as the elves have been in the
area for at least that long. The Forest
of Contamar and its Exhonán'lón is indeed a majestic sight.
A spectacularly tall and lacy conifer, pale green with bright emerald cones and
a fine-scaled greyish bark. A
favorite of the elves. Its resin can be tapped rather like a sugar maple,
without harming the tree, and used in a wide range of industrial applications -
glues, lacquers, glazes, wines, candies, and medicines.
A Sahnrix Pine can grow up to 70 peds
height. It has long straight trunks with thick bark when
mature, which is flaky with a brownish color. This thick bark and its habit of
shedding the lower branches make this species resistant to fire. Sahnrix sap,
when it runs out of the tree and hardens, can be eaten like candy. The stumps of
burned or fallen trees yield good gum for eating. Some place pieces of Sahnrix
gum in baskets and dissolve them with hot rocks and water, skimming off needles
and other extraneous matter, to make syrup.
Tulmine Tree is also known simply as the Tulmine, the Tulmine Pine, and in
northern areas simply the Tul-pine. It is called the Ret’tif (lit. "bag tree")
amongst the Kuglimz, the O'bejón
(lit. "evergreen") amongst the elves, and some
obscure dialects refer to it as the Nuriouse.
The Tulmine Tree (as it is known in Santharia)
is one of the more abundant evergreen trees in the world. With a quick growth
cycle and long lifespan they have come to cover league upon league of land in
some places. The Tulmine comes in both male and female varieties, each of which
have a distinct appearance. Some consider the Tulmine a fruit tree for its
useful berries, others a lumber tree for the good wood it produces - this is
indeed one tree with many different usages!
