The pine was a tree that could be found in the forests of the planet Chandrila. During a meeting between former Rebellion heroes Lando Calrissian, Han Solo, and Leia Organa[1] in 7 ABY,[2] the fresh smell of pine and cedar trees mixed with the scent of the droid BX-778's cooking within the apartment owned by Solo and Organa.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The pine was first mentioned in the Star Wars canon in the 2018 novel Last Shot, written by Daniel José Older,[1] and made its first full appearance in the non-canon novel Ronin: A Visions Novel.[3] In the Star Wars Legends continuity, pine trees first appeared in the 1984 young readers' book How the Ewoks Saved the Trees: An Old Ewok Legend by James Howe.[4] In the real world, pine trees are a genus of conifers that grow around the Northern Hemisphere.[5]

Non-canonical information[]

In Ronin, large numbers of pines grew on the Outer Rim Territories planet Genbara. One such tree had a curved trunk and stood next to a teahouse. The teahouse's shopkeep poured a cup of tea for the Ronin, a former Sith warrior, which the Ronin noted had a sweet aroma that was tinged with the smell of pine. A tall pine grew on the planet Rei'izu, where it uprooted a courtyard.[3]

  2. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary dates Lando Calrissian and Han Solo's pursuit of Fyzen Gor, as seen in Last Shot, to twenty-seven years before the Hosnian Cataclysm. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Hosnian Cataclysm to 34 ABY, the events of Last Shot must have taken place in 7 ABY.
