Trees! The ancient beings of the plant world. They hold a fascination for us in reality so it's only right that they should be a source of fascination in our game worlds too.

And as the aptly named Elden Ring expansion Shadow of the Erdtree arrives, we thought we'd explore which trees are the best.
