Arbori Saplings are young forest keepers that will one day protect the trees alongside their elders, the Grand Arbori. As adolescents, the Saplings work to cultivate small crops of mushrooms, ferns, and other small plants and flowers. They offer protection to traveling birds who can often be seen perched on their heads or shoulders. The birds in turn offer help with cross pollination of the surrounding plants. This relationship often grows with them into adulthood.
