> Trade with trolls makes sense to me, as they're in many ways the most human of the Elder races. But Elves seem very self-sufficient and alien in ways that would seem to discourage trade. They don't eat meat, they grow/make their own weapons, I assume they have little need of clothing / shelter... so what's left, other than the odd service or unusual magic item?

Seeds, plants and pollen from another forest. Elven goods from a distant forest
Bounties on enemies of the woods (ie dwarf and troll heads) Pleasing songs and tunes (to Aldryami ears) Unusual nutrients (brimstone, bloodmeal, bonemeal, lime, copperas, concentrated urine, guano etc)
