(I and Tab chatted about this, but let me share my comment also here.)

I no longer recommend to refer to the concept of "the tree of trees", which
is now a *non-normative* concept.
Recently, I have updated the Shadow DOM spec so that normative sections no
longer depend on the concept of "the tree of trees".

Instead, I guess you can use "shadow-including tree order" [1], if you want
a well-defined order between nodes which share the same shadow-including
root [2], across node trees.

[2]: https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#concept-shadow-including-root
