Graht-oaks are large migratory trees native to the province of Valenwood.[1] The Graht-oaks were allowed to move by magic that was invoked in the Dawn Era.[1]

The walking tree city of Falinesti is the largest of Valenwood's graht-oaks,[1] standing at a mile tall and half as wide.[2] The tree that forms the city is gnarled and twisted with a gorgeous crown of gold and green, dripping with vines and shining with sap.[2] Bosmer live in numerous natural dwellings within the mighty branches of the city, along with Orcs, Imga, and Centaurs.[1][2]

Arboreal rodents, known as Kollopi, live and feed exclusively only on the most tender branches of the graht-oaks.[3] At the time of the annual harvest in Valenwood, colonies of Imga monkeys gather these little mice by leaping around beneath the shade of the graht-oaks and picking the Kollopi from their perches.[3]

At the end of the Fourth Era, the graht-oak city of Falinesti stopped walking and rooted itself for the first time in recorded history.[4]
