Lord of the Rings Races: Ents
Ents

Ents that appear in The Lord of the Rings:
- Treebeard


Ents are tree-herders. They have come to look like trees. They live in Fangorn Forest, although Merry has heard tales of similar creatures in the Old Forest which borders The Shire. The Ents generally keep to themselves and only look after the trees of the forest. They are slowly dying off since the Ent-wives disappears many years ago.

Toward the end of the Third Age, they are an almost forgotten legend. Merry and Pippin are saved from Grishnákh the Orc by Treebeard when they climb up his "trunk" thinking that he's a tree. He then takes them to his home, Wellinghall, where a Waking Tree nearly suffocates them before Treebeard returns. He then takes them to Derndingle where the Ents have gathered for an Entmoot to discuss the news that Merry and Pippin brought. After a long meeting, the Ents decide not to get involved, so Pippin asks Treebeard to take them south. In doing so, Treebeard sees how Saruman and his Orcs have been cutting and clearing the forest nearest to Isengard. This prompts Treebeard to call the Ents out to action against Saruman.
