Animate Trees (Sp)

An elder treant can animate trees within 500 feet at will, controlling up to six trees at a time. It takes a full round for a normal tree to uproot itself. Thereafter it moves and fights as a treant in all physical respects. Animated trees lose their ability to move if the elder treant who animated them is incapacitated or moves out of range.

Trample (Ex)

An elder treant can trample Gargantuan or smaller creatures for 8d20+40 points of damage. Opponents who do not make attacks of opportunity against the elder treant can attempt a Reflex save (DC 54) to halve the damage. The save DC is Strength-based.

Triple Damage against Objects (Ex)

An elder treant that makes a full attack against an object or structure deals triple damage.

Plant Traits

Immune to poison, sleep, paralysis, stunning, and polymorphing; not subject to critical hits or mind-affecting effects.
