* Protagonists of the ''Literature/InDesertAndWilderness'' at one moment live in a naturally hollowed-out trunk of a baobab tree. It's treated fairly realistically - they have to clear layers of compost and get out various previous inhabitants, such as insects and reptiles, but the trunk still provides better shelter than tents.

[[spoiler:The downside of this is that a shaped tree will slowly die if its seed is removed.]]

** Twilight Sparkle used to live in a tree which had room not only for living quarters, but for an entire library. [[spoiler:It's destroyed in ''Twilight's Kingdom Part II'', prompting her to move into a castle made of crystal instead, though even that looks somewhat treelike and [[ItMakesSenseInContext came from a tree]].]]
** Zecora also lives inside of a tree, though hers has fewer books and more [[WitchDoctor cauldrons and medicinal herbs]].
** Mage Meadowbrook likewise lived inside a large tree in the Hayseed Swamp, and her descendant Cattail still does.

It's a fairly classic example, with habitable space throughout its height and numerous windows poking through the canopy.

** Mage Meadowbrook likewise lived inside a large tree in the Hayseed Swamp, and her descendant Cattail still does. It's the most visible atypical Arboreal Abode in the show, as -- besides consisting of a tangled mass of vines and stems rather than having a single trunk -- it has now windows, but only a small door at its base. When Twilight and Fluttershy visit in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E18AHealthOfInformation A Health of Information]]", Twilight remarks that "anyone who lives in a tree is okay by me", in a callback to her own tree-based house.
