A Treeguard.

Treeguards (also called Ents or Leifs) are creatures found in the Don't Starve world. If you chop down too many trees, a Treeguard will chase you down, untill you die, he dies, or you calm him down by planting pinecones.


Treeguards have been in the world as long as actual trees have, they lived peacefully, but soon creatures of the world began chopping down and killing Treeguards, so the Treeguards used camoflauge and hid in the forests, If someone dared to chop a tree, the Treegaurds would handle it.
