Description: 

A "landmark tree" is a tree used for navigation. This specific tree is "nine hours" (196) from de Spain's camp, in "a little glade" (198) deep within the interior of the Big Bottom; it is where Ike "relinquishes completely" to the woods, leaving his watch and compass behind in his quest to see Old Ben (197). When he realizes he is lost, the bear leads him back to the tree.
