Role in the series
Big Tree Forest first appeared in the episode "Happy Hookday!". Captain Hook swipes Skully's gifts to have his own birthday celebration on Shipwreck Rock. Jake and his crew venture into Big Tree Forest but giant acorns were falling from the massive trees, preventing the puny pirates from pressing on. Until Izzy had an idea using one of the giant mushrooms as an umbrella they could venture through the forest with out fear of being crushed by the giant acorns.
In the episode "Free Wheeling Fun", Hook and Smee manage to sneak off with Jake and his pirate friends' bicycle built for three and flee into the Never Land Jungle. While trying to evade the puny pirates, Hook and Smee head into Big Tree Forest.
Big Tree Forest is visited again in the episode "Huddle Up!". Jake and his crew are playing football to improve their skills in teamwork. Captain Hook and his crew think that the football is sure to give them powers to work as a team as well. Jake and his crew go through Big Tree Forest to reach the Up and Down Chasm, using the giant acorns from the forest to make the floating land formation level so they could get safely across.
