Since Wookiees live in the treetops, and hardly ever go down into the Shadowlands(Kashyyyk's ground) how can the Battle of Kashyyyk in the Clone Wars be fought on ground?

  • A question such as this should be on Talk:Kashyyyk. -- SFH 18:13, 23 April 2006 (UTC)
  • It juast is. It even shows them fighting on the ground. If you play Battlefront II (Even though this game is hardly canon) you'll see they never go into the treetops unless you tell them to. --DarthCow--Talk|Email

  • Because it's harder to fight on platforms hundreds of meters above ground (with the risk of falling, or having the tree blown up/cut down). Fighting on the ground keeps the trees relatively safe and opens up for combined arms combat (with tanks and artillery). VT-16 19:53, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Kachirho, the city it was fought at, is a coastal city on the Wawaatt Archipelago. Compared to the mainland, the trees are quite small; what we saw in RotS wasn't representative of the majority of Kashyyyk. Because it's not a super-dense forest, there aren't any Shadowlands; the ground level of Kachirho is sunny, open and predator-free. This made it one of the few good landing zones for the CIS. Also, I think Kachirho had the secret trade route info the CIS wanted, so they would naturally go for that city. -LtNOWIS 20:15, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
