The following example creates two XML trees, and then uses this method to add the results of a query to one of them.

Dim srcTree As XElement = _
        <Root>
            <Element1>1</Element1>
            <Element2>2</Element2>
            <Element3>3</Element3>
            <Element4>4</Element4>
            <Element5>5</Element5>
        </Root>
Dim xmlTree As XElement = _ 
        <Root>
            <NewElement>Content</NewElement>
        </Root>
xmlTree.Add( _
    From el In srcTree.Elements _
    Where CInt(el) >= 3 _
    Select el)
Console.WriteLine(xmlTree)

This example produces the following output:

<Root>
  <NewElement>Content</NewElement>
  <Element3>3</Element3>
  <Element4>4</Element4>
  <Element5>5</Element5>
</Root>
