The atmosphere is tainted by the fragrance of Shigkhu's most prominent tree, the Arubu Tree. This is a large black barked tree supports white flowers that bloom for most of the year. The tree has become the symbol for the planet, and used as a symbol of peace. The fragrance is a pleasant one and has therapeutic properties. The wood of the tree has a different, but equally pleasant and long lasting smell. The tree wood is used for construction of furniture and other interior details.

Point of Interest: Representative House Beanstalk[edit]

Representative House is the core of all incoming and outgoing traffic on the planet. The building is the largest and most impressive on the world, and houses a beanstalk. The orbital station is Helena. The elevators ferries cargo and passengers from Helena to Shigkhu's Representative House.

Originally a colony from nearby planets, the progressive attitude makes the world a friendly place to visit; even the criminal elements respect the haven status of Helena station. The famous Oval building has been site of many peace talks over the years. Off-world officials frequently gather in a neutral environment to solve inter-system political squabbles.
