A Giant Tree with "roots" that form a tunnel downwards, as well as a room with treasure.

Giant Trees (aka Living Trees) are huge trees that can be found on the surface of a world and are created during world creation. Unlike regular Trees that can be found growing across the Forests, these Giant Trees cannot be passed by the player, have trunks several blocks thick, and reach staggering heights into the air. (On Small worlds, they can even reach Space, where Harpies begin to spawn.) Underneath, you will either find large roots blending with the dirt or a long vertical tunnel which reaches a house-like area which contains Living Wood furniture and a Living Wood Chest which can contain either a Living Wood Wand (for placing Living Wood), a Leaf Wand (for placing leaf blocks), or a Living Loom (for crafting Living Wood furniture.) This tunnel will often continue a distance further down, only stopping when it hits an opening in the earth, similarly to Pyramids in the Desert.

[edit] Building Giant Trees

Players can create Giant Trees after world creation by using the Living Wood Wand, Leaf Wand, and copious amounts of Wood. The Living Wood Walls can be crafted with a Living Loom. Some form of Grappling Hook or an accessory which allows flight is recommended for building trees of considerable height.

[edit] Notes

Anomaly: Giant Trees can sometimes spawn on top of the Dungeon, reaching down and digging through the Dungeon bricks and walls, ending up well into the Underground or even Cavern layer.

[edit] Trivia

  • These Giant Trees seem to be based off of the tree built by developers in the first Terraria trailer.
