The arara tree, also known as the screaming tree, was a tree native to the Endless Forest. It bore sweet fruits that dangled in large purple clusters. While the fruits were edible and delicious, the tree would emit a terrifying screaming sound to repel predators, the mechanism of which was a mystery. The scream would trigger the fruits into secreting a poisonous glue which could be fatal to smaller creatures, but had an intoxicating effect on Gelfling which the Stonewood Clan harvested.[1]
