"Do you know there's a wizard, in Nepal, who's growing gravity-resistant trees?"
Neville Longbottom to Harry Potter[src]

A gravity-resistant tree was, presumably, a tree that floated. A wizard in Nepal was growing this species of tree, according to Goshawk's Guide to Herbology.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The reference to a gravity-resistant tree seems to establish a wizarding parallel of the Muggle discipline of hydroponics.
  • Due to the effects of gravity, the maximum height a tree can grow to in real-life is 426 feet. It stands to reason, then, that a gravity-resistant tree may be able to exceed this height.[2]
