Native Lifeforms[edit]

The planet's low gravity and extremely rich soils allow the trees to grow to fantastic size, upwards of 300 meters in height and 20 to 30 meters in diameter. The normal respiration of the trees pours great quantities of moisture into the air, making the climate a veritable hot-house for plants of all sorts. Unfortunately for the inhabitants of Ranther, there is no great interstellar market for such great quantities of wood (...even though it is highly prized on some planets) because of Rather's remote location and the great cost of interstellar travel. The people of Ranther are therefore exploring the possibility of clearing the trees with the help of various firms such as General Construction, LIC and increasing agricultural production.
