Maku Tree (Oracle of Seasons)
The Maku Tree is a character from Oracle of Seasons. The Maku Tree can be found in Horon Village at the north-east part of town. The Maku Tree in Oracle of Seasons is male. A female Maku Tree can be found in Labrynna within Oracle of Ages.
The Maku Tree is the protector of Holodrum. Link first encounters the Maku Tree after first obtaining the Wooden Sword in the Hero's Cave and opening up the gate to the Maku Tree's grove. Upon discovering the Tree, Link finds that he is slightly withered due to Onox's tampering with Din's, the Oracle of Seasons, power. The Maku Tree wearily tells Link to retrieve the eight Essences of Nature so that he can break the seal on Onox's Castle and save Din.
The Maku Tree plays host to a plethora of secrets, as well as to the Oracle of Secrets, Farore. As he grows larger with every Essence gathered, he begins to have an explorable area at his peak. A Gasha seed will be on his first platform, and the first cave contains fairies and respawning bushes, one of which has an Ember Seed, and the other has a Scent Seed; they cannot be the first way Link encounters them as, by the time the cave exists, Link will have to have gathered both. His second cavern will contain another two fairies and bushes containing the remaining seeds; these also respawn each time you enter the room.

- ↑ "What's to be done, Link? With the seasons in chaos, the land is robbed of the very essence of nature, draining all of my might! Can you save Din in my stead? It is all this Maku Tree has ever asked! I sense evil on the Northern Peak, where the Temple of Seasons rested! Onox has cast a shadow on the Northern Peak. I think you will find him there. You'll need the eight Essences of Nature that lie sleeping in Holodrum. Gathering all eight is the only option. The essences possess the sacred power of nature, with which you can break the shadow barrier and save Din. Shall I repeat it? :›Yes ›No" — Maku Tree, Oracle of Seasons.
