Tree-Tall Trunk
Theme Tree-top
Required Jiggy-1 2 (Activation: 4)
Transformation Humming Bird
Tree-Tall Trunk is the second level of Banjo-Kazooie: Gruntopolis, requiring only 4 Jiggies to activate the puzzle where only 2 must be inserted to complete it. The entrance is found at the doorway into the Conservation Lab, which is found down the street from the central square. The level takes place atop a colossal tree, so high up that Banjo and Kazooie must remain on top of the branches and leaves to avoid falling to their doom below.

Points of Interest


The Puzzle for Tree-Tall Trunk is located inside the pavilion at the center of the square near Fulgore's Fountain.


The round hole in a small birdhouse leaning against the central trunk of the colossal tree serves as the level entrance. Hopping off of the small peg will reveal a settlement established by a number of variously-colored Breegulls. A few birdhouses lie around, only the largest of which may be entered. One of them is designed as a restaurant, owned by a blue Breegull wearing a cap reading "McBirdie's". All around the tree are a number of branches and leafy canopies which may be traversed, as well as a number of holes through which Banjo and Kazooie could fall to their doom if they weren't careful. Three different ways into the central trunk exist, two of which lead into an open, circular room while the third can only be reached by flying and leads to a lone platform inside that is much too high to reach. There are two different staircases; the one which leads down opens into a huge labyrinth while the one leading up presents three different levels before the Treetop can be reached. The nest of an angry vulture, named Vultree, lies at the very top.
