Special Traits

Actions

  • Multiattack. The tree giant makes three slam attacks.
  • Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 30 (7d6 + 6) bludgeoning damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 20 Strength saving throw or be pushed 10 feet away from the tree giant and knocked prone.
  • Rock. Ranged Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, range 60/240 ft., one target. Hit: 39 (6d10 + 6) bludgeoning damage.
  • Animate Trees (3/Day). The tree giant magically animates one or two trees it can see within 60 feet of it. These trees have the same statistics as a treant, except they have Intelligence and Charisma scores of 1, they can’t speak, and they have only the Slam action option. An animated tree acts as an ally of the tree giant. The tree remains animate for 1 day or until it dies; until the tree giant dies or is more than 120 feet from the tree; or until the tree giant takes a bonus action to turn it back into an inanimate tree. The tree then takes root if possible.

Tactics

Tree giants are patient watchers of the woodland and rarely act directly, though sometimes they might use spells or their ability to animate trees to guide trouble away from their homes. Evil tree giants or those facing sustained attack will be more direct, using both spells and their deadly slam attacks to target whomever they believe is the greatest threat, usually fire-wielding warriors or spellcasters.

Description

Tree giants are ancient, colossal treants, encountered only in the oldest of forests where the trees can be as tall as themselves. They are very rare and quite difficult to spot in their native terrain, despite their enormous size. A tree giant usually stands 75 to 80 feet tall.

Most tree giants go out of their way to protect wildlife, forests, and those who would preserve them. Those uncommon evil-aligned tree giants, though, instead seek to harm any who pass into their domains.
