This enormous ancient's eyes burn blue in its blunt face. Golden sparkles dance in its boughs.[1] (APG 198)

The Tree of Life is a mighty enchanted sapling of the World Tree, Nordrassil, from which the night elves draw their life energies. This mysterious ancient is the key to the night elves’ immortality and harmonious coexistence with nature. Nordrassil’s energy, channeled through the tree of life, allows the night elves to benefit from its powers regardless of the vast distances that might separate them.[2] (W3Man 122)

Trees of life are the most important ancients in night elf society. They are the wisest and most insightful of the ancients, and gently guide night elf leaders toward the skills they need to effectively lead their people. Trees of life rarely enter combat alone; their importance means that they are usually surrounded by ancients, dryads, keepers and night elf allies. A tree of life fights defensively, remaining near its companions, but willingly smashes opponents with its great branches.[1] (APG 198)

The Tree of Life can grow into the Tree of Ages.

None of the Tree of Life's stages exist in World of Warcraft, although Druids can turn into a Treant called Tree of Life Form. They may have all been killed in the Battle of Mount Hyjal, or it is a scale issue. Also since they were a key to the night elves' immortality, their connection to the world tree and its saplings, now with the world tree severely damaged and the loss of their immortality it sounds fairly reasonable that don't exist for the time being, perhaps again when the world tree has healed itself or else they've chosen to reside in Mount Hyjal and none would know since it is a closed zone.
