The name of these Ayleid ruins implies they were abandoned because of encroaching tree roots. But the Wood Elves whisper that the sundering roots were not those of normal Grahtwood trees.
The Root Sunder Ruins

The Root Sunder Ruins are a set of Ayleid ruins between Elden Root and Haven in Grahtwood.

Sitting now long-abandoned, the ruins have now become inhabited by all manners of local wildlife who have come to reclaim it for the forest.

The skyshard is located in the chamber second-left from the entry point (southwest), near one of the quest markers for "If the Dead Could Talk".
