Sonic and the Efrika Egg Army in the Holy Tree, from Sonic the Hedgehog #280.

The Holy Tree is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a colossal tree found in the Savannah Citadel Zone. It holds a Gaia Temple and is revered by the people of Mazuri.[1]


The Holy tree is a lush baobab tree at the size of a skyscraper. It is immensely wide with wooden roads winding between its branches. A few wooden stances with multicolored screens also hang over the roads.



Seeking to seize the Gaia Temple in the Holy Tree for themselves, the Efrika Egg Army would occupy the Holy Tree.[1]

Act Two

Sonic, Tails and Chip later came to the Holy Tree to get back the Gaia Keys the Efrika Egg Army had stolen. There, Sonic distracted the Egg Army and the Egg Boss Axel the Water Buffalo by making them chase him through the treetops while Tails and Chip snuck into the Gaia Temple to get the keys.[1]
