We (might) finally know how tall Elden Ring’s Erdtree is

If you’ve ever tried to beat a Elden Ring boss or just accidentally hit yourself trying to play, then you are familiar with Erdtree. It was that big, bright tree, drawing its power directly from the Elden Ring and standing in the center of Leyndell. Looking in, it clearly saw the surrounding mountains and hills. Which means it’s a really big tree.

Even so, how tall is Erdtree really? Well, thanks to YouTuber Zullie the Witch, we have at least some estimates.

With so many different parts that you can explore, it’s clear that, scientifically speaking, it’s huge; As Zullie notes, you can see the tree “dominating” the landscape from anywhere on the map. But those bits provide some comparison of the size of different parts of the tree.

The trunk seems to continue to extend hundreds of meters below the surface, and while it is cut off at the top, there are branches that reach higher than that point. According to their measurements, from the base (underground) of Erdtree to the highest branch point is about 5,048 meters high – or approximately 16,562 feet.

To put that in perspective, that’s a good fraction of Mount Everest’s height (about 29,000 feet). Alternatively, you can think of it as about 15.3 Eiffel Towers (1,083′ tall, if you measure to the top) or 3,365 Danny DeVitos (4’10”, according to the internet) stacked on top of each other.

Of course, the actual height above the ground of the tree is slightly different and it depends on where you can stand next to it. By Zullie’s calculations, it could reduce altitude by about 1,000 meters (or 2,000 feet). Even still, we can all agree: big tree.
