At the edge of Whisker Woods lies a tree older than Gnawnia itself. Its magic roots stretch far underground and deep into the woods, giving life to the other trees. The shadow it casts is so massive that it began to affect the surrounding area through time, blocking necessary light from other trees. As a result, the other trees seem almost alive as they bend back and forth, seeking out the light.


The Great Gnarled Tree is a location in the Whisker Woods region requiring a minimum rank of Master and the Great Gnarled Tree Map Piece to enter.
Mice in the Great Gnarled Tree cannot steal gold or points, but can steal cheese if not caught.
Mice in the Great Gnarled Tree are primarily weak to Tactical weapons. Arcane, Hydro, Law, Physical and Shadow weapons can also be used, though they may perform less well.
