When the vampire Gulthias was killed, the wooden stake that slew him was infused with his evil essence. Soon it grew into an evil sapling. A mad druid took it to an underground grotto where it grew into a large tree which its seeds were used to sow the first Blights.
In Curse of Strahd, a group of druids have an army of blights and have taken over the Wizard of Wines Winery and stolen one of its gems to use in a ritual on Yester Hill to bring the Tree Blight Wintersplinter to life.
