The Great Tree.

The Great Tree[13, 34] can be found in Crystalsong Forest's northwestern portion, right next to the Violet Stand, in Northrend. Unlike the other four Great Trees, this one does not have a portal in front of it, and has strange runes dotting its surface.

It was planted by followers of Fandral Staghelm from one of Nordrassil's branches in order to stem the tide of saronite seeping up from the land.[1]

The Great Tree is the only non-crystal portion in the entire Crystalsong Forest. This enormous tree stands near its northern edge. Throughout the world there are a few trees close to this one's size — its trunk is easily as thick around as a castle and its canopy rises several hundred feet above the ground. Its roots must be equally deep to pass below the crystals into soil, unless the crystals themselves provide nourishment. The Great Tree is a portal into the Emerald Dream. Twelve green dragons guard it constantly, nesting in its branches and swooping down to intercept visitors. Druids are allowed entrance, but everyone else is turned back, or killed.

When Crystalsong Forest was transformed into its current state millennia ago, only the Great Tree was spared, protected by its green dragon guardians.[2]
