The Hallowed Oak was the tree in Greenreach that was the home of the Starwife until the reign of Ysabelle. The roots of the tree stretched down into the caverns and dark grottoes beneath the world. It towered above the blessed land for six hundred years until the rat god Hobb kicked it over.

Within the Hallowed Oak was a long, spiralling stairway, which led to various rooms on different levels of the tree. Near the bottom were store-rooms and chambers where serfs (mostly red squirrels) slept. Above was a grand hall, and nearby was the royal stairway leading to the chambers of the Starwife which included her throne room and bedchamber.
