    Hashtag should take this pretty easy I think. Netero is powerful and extremely annoying to fight but Hashirama just plays at a higher level.

    Hashirama flips a continent and Netero needs to kill himself to produce a massive power leveling country. While both have the bodhisattva of a million hands, the wood one will win.

    Hashirama could block and straight up catch Kurama's mountain range busting blasts with his wood constructs.

    From what I've seen of Netero he wants none of that.

    To be fair, Wood Release is pretty much kryptonite to Bijuu chakra because reasons, so its performance against Kurama's blasts aren't necessarily indicative of how well it would deal with other types of attacks. That said, his wood Buddha was able to hold its own against Madara's Susano'o, IIRC, which seems a couple of tiers higher than I remember Netero being.

    Seriously though, did they ever explain why trees >>>>>>>>>> sentient fragments of a primordial god, especially when said God's true form was also a tree?

    I doubt both, when has Hashirama shown the power to affect a continent, and when has Netero shown the power to affect a country? Even the bomb he used at best affected a small part of a country, and was more like a nuke.

    Technically, a city can be a country, ala Vatican City.

    The short answer would probably be the “tree as source of life” idea that’s prevalent in a lot of mythology; the Hindu/Buddhist traditions (Buddha attained enlightenment whilst meditating under a tree, as an example) have a lot of influence on Naruto. And that tree of life symbol isn’t peculiar to them either as Wikipedia notes; there’s the Norse Yggdrasil, the Biblical Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and so forth.

    This goes into some of the myth comparisons. The Kyuubi is based on demons/deities which from my cursory reading don’t seem to be on the same cosmological level of “Sacred Tree that Enlightened Buddha.”

    Best I know, it's "Something something Reincarnation something something Asura something something Inherited OP powers".
    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    I don't recall it being explicitly stated, but given Hashirama inherited the bloodline and reincarnated spirit of...one of the Sage of Six Path's sons - Indra? Asura? One of those I think? - it's sorta implied that a creature manifested from a specific, magically imbued tree would, therefore, be effected by someone who can manipulate the same sort of arboreal wizardry. This also gels with what was established previously with Yamato being able to suppress Kurama's power.

    So uh, with Naruto's final act being full of roots and trees and such reaching back to the origins of ninjutsu, other than being sourced from aliens from the moon, lore-wise it sorta makes sense.
