When I see a tree, it looked like this: ±

Should we mention that here? -- 22:14, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

It's the same kind of problem as with fountains — read that article for a full explanation. I believe the trees are even supposed to look like ±, so I'll change the article accordingly. --ZeroOne 22:32, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Why the heck are there trees underground?

Some levels are considered to be arboreal, and/or not actually underground, for example the quest it accessed via magical portal, so it's not in the dungeon. --Paxed 11:57, 20 July 2007 (UTC)


How else can I deforest the dungeon? In Slash'EM, not even a frag grenade or stick of dynamite can rid me of these coniferous pests. Given their fortunate rarity, lugging an axe about simply for the purpose of lumberjacking seems silly.

Yule Tide

I believe sporkhack has a christmas tree, around christmas time, the kicking of which yields a gift (currently playing: It had colored balls. Kicked it 1ce, got a scroll. Kicked it again, got a pained leg)Slarty 01:30, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Items periodically falling from trees during the Lawful quest?

Been camping the throne in the lawful quest for a bit. I had kicked the throne resulting in an injured leg and being unable to kick. Several turns after (5-10) of just (s)earching, I get the message, "A eucalyptus leaf falls from the tree."

This leaf appeared on the throne. Is this somehow a result of my kick? I'm certain the kick hit the throne, and there were at least 5 turns of searching before getting the message.

I should note that this is in the latest Slash'EM build.

In the source "falls from the tree!" appears only in the dokick file. It appears however that threes slowly multiply on their own.--Quantum Immortal (talk) 11:10, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
See the hack.c functions "drop_ripe_treefruit" and "dgn_growths" for an explanation; trees can spontaneously drop fruits, but every time they do there's a chance the tree gets marked as "looted" and won't generate any more fruits. --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 11:20, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
