Fortnite - Alien tree locations: Where to destroy alien trees in Fortnite explained

I think it's a Banksy.

Destroy alien trees is one of the Epic Quests in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

This challenge is only available during Week 6 of this season, and thankfully, you don't need to do anything specific to unlock it - it becomes automatically available in-game.

It's a rather straightforward task that offers plenty of options, but we have found spot in particular that should make this a breeze.

Completing this Fortnite challenge will help you level up with 30k XP and unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 7 Battle Pass skins.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

How to destroy alien trees fast in Fortnite explained

The effects of the alien invasion can be witnessed in every corner of the battle royale map by now.

Nature has been caught in the crossfire as well, and some areas have been affected more than others, which make for perfect spots to complete this challenge.

Below you can find the aforementioned areas at a glance:

Plenty of alien infected sites around!

Of course, you're bound to bump onto other players while doing this quest, which can delay the time exponentially.

For this quest, we have opted to pay a visit to the area west of Boney Burbs. This particular named location is not involved in any of this week's challenges, which means that it should be fairly quiet all around.

Once you arrive, you'll notice the usual alien scenery. The trees inside the purple area with otherworldly shapes are the ones you're looking for.

Not all of them have the same shape, but regardless of this, they all count towards the challenge. You need to destroy a total of five alien trees to complete it.

If you've just landed from the battle bus, your pickaxe will do the trick. They're fairly week so it will take you only a matter of seconds to destroy all five of them.

That's all for this particular quest! If you happen to be hunting for this week's alien artefacts, one of the locations will take you to an alien infected area, so you can cross both tasks off the list in one go.
