The setting includes both magic and 21st century technology. The species in question are non-sessile, sentient and sapient trees, and has evolved that way due to the threat of a xylophagous predator. They are angiosperms and dioecious.
They have a tribal society, each tribe having multiple villages. Instead of burying or cremating their dead, they use the wood from the deceased to build tools and structures such as houses.
Without the need to grow food, they wouldn't have professions such as hunters, fishermen and farmers.
- What kind of professions would they have?
- What would drive them to even do things that sessile, non-sentient trees don't do, if these trees can do perfectly well without building societies?
- Would they derive their meaning from religion or from natural reality?
