Oak.

The oak tree could be found in various places in the Forgotten Realms, including the starwood area of the forest of Cormanthor, where they could grow up to 400' (122m).[1][2]

VarietiesEdit

ChimeEdit

Chime oaks were specific to the northern sections of east starwood, a portion of the forest of Cormanthor. They were like regular oaks, but appeared as though they were made of glass. Their leaves froze easily in autumn and winter, and did not fall off the tree, instead making a tinkling noise in the wind, which gave the trees their name. This noise attracted basilisks.[3]

Notable oaksEdit

The Sacred Oak was a highly respected ancient oak tree in Leuthilspar on the island of Evermeet. The wood and wild elves believed that it was the first tree on Evermeet, while it was more generally believed that the tree came from Arvandor.[4]

A huge oak tree formed each of the four corners of the Elfstone Tavern in Waterdeep.[5]
