Ivy around trees is like the ghouls around a human, it suffocates the tree and eventually kills it.
I take small ax and secateurs (cutters) into the woods and liberate trees tearing down all the ivy I can reach. Sometimes I get one of the younger lads to climb up the tree for me. I don’t know how many trees I’ve liberated, many hundreds I’d guess
The trees help protect you in the Aluna worlds, they hover over you, so befriending them grants you a defined benefit, a new protection.
It’s a prayer to Gaia liberating a tree, every little bit helps. (sw)
