The woods surrounding Valldalen appear as a massive network of natural skyscrapers. Valldalen was one of the unfortunate tree villages that experienced a dramatic upheaval during the Great Shift. The uprooted village was able to rebuild from the bottom up. The internal structure of the tree was hollowed out and a village was able to be formed both inside and out. A maze of connecting paths provided Valldalen with a solid foundation to protect itself in case of another catastrophic event. The villagers celebrate the anniversary of the restoration every year with a festival honouring the fallen. Paper lanterns can be seen throughout the streets during this week long celebration.
