The ash trees are a sentient species of Nyovan flora native to Drakoa and Argona. When startled or trespassed upon this territorial plant drags the trespasser into the ground with its roots. There the jaws where the roots originate swallow the prey whole. When inside the tree, prey is digested within 30 minutes by green juices within the plant's insides. Along the leafless branches are spores that catch aerial insects and other small animals. Nyovans of all ages are to keep their distance from these sinister trees. The only known way to kill these plants is to fire burning arrows into its base so the flames can swallow the tree in minutes.
