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

XElement srcTree = new XElement("Root",
    new XElement("Element1", 1),
    new XElement("Element2", 2),
    new XElement("Element3", 3),
    new XElement("Element4", 4),
    new XElement("Element5", 5)
);
XElement xmlTree = new XElement("Root",
    new XElement("NewElement", "Content")
);
xmlTree.AddFirst(
    from el in srcTree.Elements()
    where (int)el >= 3
    select el
);
Console.WriteLine(xmlTree);

This example produces the following output:

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