Fourtrees, or Druid's Hollow, is a group of four, large oak trees in a hollow within the center part of the forest territories.[1] Many moons before Firestar called the forest home, a battle took place at Fourtrees,[3] where the fighting Clans were advised by their ancestors to avoid unneeded bloodshed and instead learn to live in peace.[4] In the following generations, the Clans continued to meet at Fourtrees under a truce,[5] to share news with one another.[6]

Description

In the middle, there is a steep-sided clearing[7] and in the center is a large rock called the Great Rock,[8] which is noted to have jagged edges.[7] The Clan leaders use it to look down on the Clans and share their news during Gatherings.[9] They are also referred to as the Great Oaks.[10]

Location history

After the Clans left the forest territories for their own safety, Twolegs destroyed the Fourtrees clearing to make their own territory.[11] Many moons following, the clearing is made into a circular path with smooth grass at the top of the hollow. The remnants of the Great Rock remain as a pile of crushed rocks and the four oak trees that gave Fourtrees its name are cut down.[12]
