“Wishing trees don't run railways. That's my job!”
Sir Topham Hatt, Henry and the Wishing Tree, eighth season[src]

The Sodor Wishing Tree is said to be the oldest tree on Sodor, even older than Edward, Sir Handel and Sir Topham Hatt. It is said that it grants wishes to those who make a wish on it. Once it was struck by lightning but fortunately Henry saved it with the help of some tree specialists.

Henry has a special fondness for this tree.
