Kashyyyk trees

Wroshyr trees on Kashyyyk

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

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,[1] 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 of trees and they could be found on a number of planets. They were a source of carbon. Twisted tree was a species of tree found on planet Zaloriis. These trees were an abundant source of carbon.

Trees were usually deeply rooted and strong, and connected to the larger force of nature, yet they bowed and shifted at the promptings of wind and weather.[2] While the greatest trees could withstand external attack, they were susceptible to rot from within.[3]

Arboreal species lived among forests and trees and were specially adapted to tree living.[4]
