"I have not been able to meditate in my room. But I find when I come here, it is possible."
"It does not surprise me that you are drawn to this place. This uneti tree has a strong connection to the Force. It is why the Jedi Order brought it here."
Barriss Offee and Tutso Mara, on the Great Tree[5]

The uneti tree[6] was an incredibly rare species of long-lived mildly Force-sensitive[1] tree that grew on the planet Ahch-To. The ancient library, which was built to hold the founding texts of the Jedi Order, was made in the hollowed-out trunk of an uneti tree.[2] Chirrut Îmwe, a member of the Guardians of the Whills, had a staff made from its wood.[7]

The Great Tree which grew at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant was also a uneti tree,[4] one that possessed a strong connection to the Force.[8] The tree was said to have come from seeds from the very first Jedi Temple.[9] During the High Republic Era, Jedi Master Wishan created incense using the petals that blossomed from the Great Tree on Coruscant which Stellan Gios found invaluable to use during Meditation.[10] By the time of the Clone Wars, the tree was generations old.[1]

Luke Skywalker's study of the spread of uneti saplings was the key to finding the Temple Island on Ahch-To.[6]
