The Sun Tree is a sacred tree that was divinely created by Pelor at the intersection of powerful ley lines in Whitestone. Although it was almost killed by the unholy desecration of the Briarwoods, it had recovered by the time Vox Machina returned to Whitestone in "Duskmeadow" (5x01). Keyleth has used her druidic spells to communicate with the Sun Tree. As an NPC, the Sun Tree is played by Matthew Mercer, often to comedic effect.
The Sun Tree sits in the center of Whitestone, in the town square. It is described as very large, leafless, tree, with a full height of 40 feet tall. The branches twist out, and hang loosely at the ends. Everything about the tree looks "droopy and desolate,".
Vox Machina was unable to identify the type of tree, though they were able to tell it was created and transported through a type of divine magic.
"The Sun Tree" (3x05) Edit
When Vox Machina first saw the Sun Tree, it was in poor health, the branches drooping and no leaves left on it. Eight bodies were hanging from its branches, and the group realized that each body was dressed and colored to look like one of them, as a message from the Briarwoods.
When Keyleth attempted to communicate with the tree using Speak with Plants, she got no response as the Sun Tree was effectively dead at that point. The druid then began casting Plant Growth over the next eight hours in an attempt to revive the Sun Tree.
"Duskmeadow" (5x01) Edit
"Deadly Echoes" (6x13) Edit
"One Year Later..." (7x11) Edit
Keyleth tried casting Speak with Plants, but was unsuccessful as the sun tree had died. She then cast Plant Growth and Sunbeam at the Sun Tree to try and heal it. Though her attempt was unsuccessful.
