Sil Arnoth, in the old language, or The Great One, was a gigantic tree located in the heart of the Blackwood, in Yewland—reached by the Arch of Reverence. Sil Arnoth held a scroll that was extremely important, containing the Legend of the Three Witnesses. This tree was cut down by Paragory during The Rise of the Wyrm Lord , to the great sorrow of many Yewlanders—for Sil Arnoth held a dear spot in many hearts. Sil Arnoth, like all other Blackwood trees, had the ability to ring-speak. He could record his thoughts on the rings of his tree-trunk.
