* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'': When moving around on the overworld, trees come up to your sprite's waist. Background screens during a battle and forested locations such as Kolima and Mogall show more realistic trees.

* The trees in the various ''VideoGame/MechWarrior'' games are not only short, but they're pencil thin. In addition, they all seem to be skinny, unhealthy-looking pine trees. You never encounter a redwood or even a respectably sized oak.

* The trees in the various ''VideoGame/MechWarrior'' games are not only short, but they're pencil thin. In addition, they almost all seem to be skinny, unhealthy-looking pine trees. You never encounter a redwood or even a respectably sized oak. Averted in ''Mechwarrior Living Legends'', where trees and other foliage is to-scale with the PoweredArmor suits and real life, though once you climb into your HumongousMecha everything looks tiny.

* VideoGame/{{Furcadia}}'s original default trees were not much taller than players with one literally being an oversized bonzai tree. This has been averted with more recent tree additions, some of which are so large they require two items to be placed on the map to make one tree.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': Trees are sparse, limited only to the greener areas of the island, and generally remain small across Vvardenfell. Justified since it is mostly an ashy, volcanic island which doesn't support much in the way of vegetation.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': Trees In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' backstory, St. Veloth was the legendary [[OurElvesAreBetter Chimer]] mystic who led his people [[DefectorFromDecadence away from the decadence]] of the Summerset Isles to their new homeland in Morrowind. He was said to have brought the seeds of trees with him from the Summerset Isle and planted them in Vvardenfell. With ashy, volcanic soil not being the best supporter of vegetation, the trees that took were sparse and remained quite small. This can be seen in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', where trees are sparse, limited only to the greener areas of the island, and generally remain small across Vvardenfell. Justified since it is mostly an ashy, volcanic island which doesn't support much in the way of vegetation.

Added DiffLines:

* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] with the Sacred Forest in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash'', as the forest was shrunk to a ridiculously small size by Kamek's magic. The trees are only barely taller the Mario in there.

* ''{{Eversion}}'' has trees barely taller than the character, although whether they are really short trees or just tall bushes is up for debate.

** Most games in the series have very small trees, so much so that a 3' 11" Sudowoodo is mistaken for a tree in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal]]'', as well as in the remakes ''[=HeartGold=]'' and ''[=SoulSilver=]''. This is downplayed somewhat in Generation IV, where the inside of [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Eterna Forest]] is dappled with light and shadow to give the impression of large trees overhead -- despite the actual trees seen still being as small as ever, almost seeming to suggest a layered forest with regular trees above bonsai ones -- and in the Generation V games, where occasional trees, usually in forest areas, are twice as tall as normal tree sprites.

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' previously played this straight, with trees always taking up one tile. Averted of the 2014 update, however -- they now grow many levels high and thick with branching patterns. They now tower over dwarves ([[UnitsNotToScale and giants, and dragons]]). [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential More interestingly for the players themselves]], trees now can actually fall on people and crush them.
