Tall Trees Union, was the creation of Paladin Thaddeus Marik.
The Union was one of several "pocket fortress" founded by Thaddeus Marik, as part of then Paladin Thaddeus Marik's secret plan to lay the groundwork for the return of the Free Worlds League, by creating pockets of neighborhoods with Prefecture VI, VII, and VIII. He presented this version of his plan to Exarch Jonah Levin as a means to soften the return of the Republic, once the walls of Fortress Republic have gone up.
The Union was organized by Marik and his agents. To strengthen the formation of the Union, Thaddeus hired the mercenary Wolf Hunters unit to raid New Canton in October of 3136, to compel the local government to join. The plan called for Marik to lead coalition force—consisting of Tall Trees Union's militia forces—to come to their aid.
However, the plan was disrupted by the arrival of the Steel Wolves seeking revenge on the Wolf Hunter's commander, Anastasia Kerensky. Since the Hunter's raid was stopped before any damage was done. Thaddeus' plan to convince them to join the Union for better protection failed. By 3145, the Union had been absorbed by the reborn Free Worlds League.
As of 3139, the Union consisted of four worlds: Hsien, Menkalinan, Saiph and the capital world of Tall Trees.
