The Mallorn Tree is one of the many resource buildings of the Lothlorien faction. Besides generating resources it increases command points by 50 when built.

It is a unique resource building because you can choose one of three special upgrades called "Melian Effects" for it. Two more upgrades are available depending on whether Galadriel accepts the Ring or declines it. One of them can be researched alongside with another one, but the other still has the limit.
