The Spirit of the Southern Tree values community above all else, though a community with certain rules. It is a friendly lord, who cares about all living things in its forest and wants everything in its proper place. It is usually happy and kind.

The Kodama of the Summer Tree corresponds to Summer.

The monks of the South Tree had always reveled beneath their kodama's friendly gaze. During the Kami War, this gaze became fierce and full of hate. -Poem of the Five Trees
