Default Re: Anatomy of a Skybroom

An interesting idea for the skybrooms. I'd think that instead of them being nut bearing though, the trees would be colony based. Root system grows stalks, like Aspen trees. It would work better than a tree trying to grow nuts through what you've described as bands of increasingly dense mineral growths. Forestry could consist of harvesting saplings instead of full grown trees. They'd be less dense, on a level of terran oak, but able to be worked.
