Treant has the highest base damage in the game at level 1 so make use of it to harass and deny.

Look for angles to cut off opponents with Nature's Grasp. Make sure to catch a tree in its path.

Leech Seed continues healing even after the unit it was used on dies.

Look around the map to heal and save allies and buildings with Living Armor.

Treant is great at defending towers safely with Nature's Grasp and Living Armor.

Don't rush with Overgrowth in the fights as opponents are likely to have multiple ways to dispel it at the start.

Treant is amazing at split pushing without even showing himself. Go ham on it when not much is happening.

Pick up Aghanims Shard around minute 15 to become invisible near trees and lockdown enemy heroes and creeps on attack.

Aghanim's Scepter will win a vision game for your team in the late game.

With your Aghanims Shard, you can use Natures Grasp to connect between Tree Lines and stay invisible.

Counter Strategy

Quell trees in the lane so you can keep track of Treant Protector and stop Nature's Guise.

Keep distance from Treant Protector as he has the highest base damage in the game.

Take towers down in one go so Treant Protector can't heal them with Living Armor.

Be aware of Treant Protector's Meteor Hammer timing. He becomes good at splitpushing.

Treant Protector becomes invisible with his aghanims shard upgrade. Carry detection on multiple heroes.

Observers and sentries at the outer jungles of the map are great at stopping Treant from splitpushing.

Items that apply dispel on you, are great against Treant's Overgrowth and Leech Seed.

Once Treant gets Aghanim's Scepter consider getting a Gem and cut Eyes in the Forest.


Far to the west, in the mountains beyond the Vale of Augury, lie the remains of an ancient power, a fount of eldritch energy nestled deep in the high woods. It is said that the things that grow here, grow strangely. To the forces of nature this is a sacred place, made to stay hidden and unknown. Many are the traps and dangers of this land. There are all-consuming grasses, crossbred fauna and poisonous flowers, but none are so fierce as the mighty Treant Protectors. These ageless, titanic beings, charged with keeping the peace in this dangerous land, ensure that none within encroach without reason, and none without poach their secrets. For time untold they tended to their holy ground, uninterrupted, only dimly aware of the changing world beyond. Yet inevitably the wider world grew aware of this untamed land, and with each passing winter the outsiders grew bolder. Soon they arrived with tools to cut and with flames to burn, and often the Treants would ponder: who are these fragile, industrious creatures? What now had become of the wild, green world? There came and went an age of questions and of doubts, a thousand summers of long traditions set to scrutiny, while more and more the outsiders died and fed their earth. When all that bloomed had finally finished their say, curiosity had overcome caution. It was decided: a lone Protector would be sent into the wider world, and instructed to wander until the glaciers arose once more, to observe the changing land and its creatures, and to discover what unknown dangers could threaten their sacred ground.
