The Tree of Life was a tree that was located on the planet of Kashyyyk, in the galaxy's Mid Rim. It was sacred to the native Wookiee people, who traditionally held their longstanding Life Day celebration around the tree. To represent the original Tree of Life, Wookiee families typically chose an ancient tree, which they adorned with shining Life Day Orbs. Those who were far from Kashyyyk could conduct a simple ritual around an image of a tree or a mere piece of wood.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The first canonical mention of the Tree of Life was in a Databank entry on the official Star Wars website. However, it originated in The Star Wars Holiday Special, a 1978 television variety show that was spun off of Star Wars, George Lucas's film of the previous year.
