The Tree Wars were a series of battles between LeafWings and HiveWings that ultimately resulted in the near-extinction of LeafWings. The event took place fifty years before The Lost Continent Prophecy, and deforested most of Pantala.
Fifty years ago, Queen Wasp claimed that Clearsight wanted her to rule all the tribes. Queen Monarch stepped down and submitted the SilkWings under Wasp's rule, believing that the Book of Clearsight must be true. Queen Sequoia asked for evidence, to which Wasp denied to show, resulting in the start of the Tree Wars. Wasp eventually ordered the trees to be burnt and cut down, as she believed that LeafWings gained their power from them. LeafWings were almost brought to extinction and any references to trees were banned in HiveWing society, supposedly out of Wasp's spite.
- Wasp deforests Pantala in small ways, believing that LeafWings gain their power from trees.

- Queen Monarch decides to step down, allowing Wasp to rule the SilkWings.
- Queen Sequoia asks to read the Book of Clearsight herself to make sure Wasp's claims are true, but Wasp refuses to let Sequoia to read the book.
- A peace summit is held with the intention to infect Wasp with the breath of evil. The plan backfires, giving Wasp the ability to mind-control her subjects.
- After many more summits and negotiations, the war begins.
- After a battle, Dragonfly is deemed a hero. Part of Jewel Hive and possibly Dragonfly Bay are subsequently named after her.
