The Peace Grove contains six of the tallest trees in New England, one now bearing a (virtual) Logozoan in its bark. ("A tree standing atop the highest hill knows nothing of achievement. Until it's cut down and made into trophy bases.")

Alorah: "It should be noted that it was an achievement in itself just to get to these trees. They're not on any marked path, so we hiked up and down aimlessly though the forest seemingly forever. Just when we had all but given up, we stumbled upon this clearing—direct sunlight shining through the trees, the liquid sound of birdsong in the background . . . and there they were. It was very dramatic."
