Oye Tree (Oh-Ye)
It has a large trunk with light green leaves. The branches bend down. It resembles a Western Hemlock.
Genetics and Reproduction
Growth Rate & Stages
It grows every 3 years on the planet. It grows from a seed into a sapling then a young mature tree to a fully fledged grown tree. The sapling stage is when the tree is most vulnerable to harsh winds. The young mature stage is when the leaves start to emerge. The Storcel tend to harvest the leaves at that stage.
Ecology and Habitats
It needs to have a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit/Celsius, have enough water, on a mountain.
Dietary Needs and Habits
It uses the sun to grow like any other plant. The roots collect the water from the soil to make the tree grow.
When it gets to winter, it’s leaves fall off and grows back in spring. It sucks up as much water as possible for the winter seasons as water is very little. During the spring is when most of the harvesting for Storcel’s happen.
Uses, Products & Exploitation
The leaves are used as food for the native species of the planet.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
Its native to forests and plains. It sometimes grows in the dark but it rarely happens. Its found next to Lokea and other settlements.
Cultural SignificancePeople make settlements near them. They resemble honor and respect. There are some who think the opposite but people don’t care. They don’t need to travel as far to get food and is helpful to the Oye trees as well. People help them grow faster and helps to protect the trees from forces of nature like wildfires.
