Bethesda is known for quests that seem to pop up out of nowhere and concern the most random events and objects around you. Starfield lives up to this format and gives us a questline where a random tree might end up killing everyone in New Atlantis if nothing is done about it. Let's see how to start the questline with A Tree Grows in New Atlantis. It's not one of their most creative quest names.
How to Unlock A Tree Grows in New Atlantis
You unlock this quest after talking to Kelton Frush and enquiring about the tree he's studying. The first time you hear of it will be through a random NPC conversation. To find Kelton Frush, head to the front of the MAST building in New Atlantis. Walk straight ahead, and you'll find him under a giant tree.

Speak to Kelton Frush
When you first talk to Kelton, he'll be concerned about the behavior of the giant tree. He'll tell you about it and ask you to help him locate his sensors to study their data.
Locate the Bio-Sensors
There are a total of four Bio-Sensors you need to recover. You can find three of them lying out in the open, where you can collect them easily. Their locations are:
- Right in front of The Lodge
- In a Tree in the Residential District of New Atlantis
- In front of another nearby tree in a lower section of the Residential District.
Someone in front of the SSNN broadcast building has picked up the fourth sensor.
Ask Jorden about the Sensor
Speak to a boy named Jordan, and he'll mention an egg-shaped thing he found and sold to Wen Tseng at the UC Distributions.
Get the Sensor from Wen Tseng
The UC Distributions is on the opposite side of the plaza and relatively close by. Head inside the building and speak to Wen Tseng, the receptionist. She'll offer to sell you the Sensor for 100 Credits.
Alternatively, you can head to the storage room on the left and steal the sensor. Even if someone sees you, you only get a measly 97 Credit bounty.

Deliver the Sensors
Return to Kelton, who will be waiting in the same spot, and hand him the four sensors you have gathered. He'll start analyzing them.
Wait for Kelton's Analysis
Kelton's Analysis can take a while, so sit on a nearby bench and wait for a few hours.
Speak to Kelton Frush
When Kelton says, "Ah! There it is. What a Relief, " he is done analyzing his findings. However, he won't be pleased with the results and will expect you to help him again soon. You can start the next quest, Out On A Limb, after waiting for 24 in-game hours.
