Wroshyr trees on Kashyyyk

"They say that the Force flows in the sap of forests like these."
―Thi Xon Yimmon visiting Toprawa[1]

A tree was a type of plant. Large numbers of trees formed forests and jungles on many arboreal worlds throughout the galaxy. Trees were a source of wood, and were often covered in protective bark,[2] both of which could be extracted for numerous uses by various individuals. Some trees, such as the veshok trees of Mandalore yielded sturdy durable wood, while the wroshyr trees of the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk, were known to grow to immense sizes. Strange trees were a type that could be found on a number of planets. Trees were a source of carbon, particularly the twisted tree native to Zaloriis.[3]

Trees were usually deeply rooted and strong, and firmly connected to nature, yet they bowed and shifted at the promptings of wind and weather.[4] While the greatest trees could withstand external attack, they were susceptible to rot from within.[5]

Arboreal species lived among forests and trees and were specially adapted to tree living.[6]
