The boles of the trees glowed with a soft green like young grass: In the face of the stony wall there was something like a stair Nothing grew there but a few grasses and weeds at its edge, and one old stump of a tree with only two bent branches left They came at length to the edge of the shelf almost at the feet of the old stump; then they sprang up and turned round with their backs to the hill, breathing deep, and looking out eastward.
They saw that they had only come some three or four miles into the forest It feels cool up here. This shaggy old forest looked so different in the sunlight. I almost felt I liked the place. That's uncommonly kind of you,' said a strange voice. A large knob-knuckled hand was laid on each of their shoulders, and they were twisted round, gently but irresistibly; then two great arms lifted them up.
They found that they were looking at a most extraordinary face. It belonged to a large Man-like, almost Troll-like, figure, at least fourteen foot high, very sturdy, with a tall head, and hardly any neck. Whether it was clad in stuff like green and grey bark, or whether that was its hide, was difficult to say. The lower part of the long face was covered with a sweeping grey beard, bushy, almost twiggy at the roots, thin and mossy at the ends.
But at the moment the hobbits noted little but the eyes. These deep eyes were now surveying them, slow and solemn, but very penetrating. They were brown, shot with a green light. Do not be hasty, that is my motto. But if I had seen you, before I heard your voices I should have just trodden on you, taking you for little Orcsand found out my mistake afterwards.
Very odd you are, indeed.
Root and twig, very odd! Under those eyes he felt a curious suspense, but not fear. And what are you?
In the book Treebeard finds the hobbits standing on a hill in Fangorn taking a breath and looking around. For a while they discuss who is who and what their names are and then Treebeard takes Merry and Pippin along to take them to his home.

He brings the hobbits to his home to sleep and goes to find the other Ents. When he comes back he rescues Merry and Pippin from a willow tree that has taken the hobbits captive under its roots.
He says the forest is waking up and they leave to Entmoot. On their way Treebeard tells them something about the Entwives. In the book Treebeard takes the hobbits to his home, Wellinghallso they can talk more. Merry and Pippin tell Treebeard about their adventures and he tells the hobbits about Saruman. The next day they go to Derndingle where the Entmoot is kept to decide if the Ents will go to war. It seems that the coming of the hobbits just somehow suddenly make him notice that things have changed.
There Treebeard sees what Saruman has done to the forest. He gets angry and shouts all the Ents to go to war with them. In the book at the Entmoot the Ents first agree that the hobbits are not orcs and that a new line must be added in the old lists.
Then the Ents decide that they will go to war against Isengard and Saruman and they take the hobbits with them. The change in the result of the Entmoot is probably made because of Merry and Pippin.

They maybe needed something that shows their evolution throughout the movie but it somehow changes the character of Treebeard. They live much in their own world but the change from the book still feels big. The destruction of Isengard The movie shows how the Ents, having Merry and Pippin with them, destroy Isengard and kill the orcs with stones.
Then they release the river and the water covers all Isengard. Later Treebeard is walking around in flooded Isengard, listening to the hobbits laughing and smoking pipe. In the book the destruction is not described until later when the hobbits tell how it happened.
At the end of the attack Treebeard meets Gandalf who asked for his help with orcs. Treebeard just tells the hobbits that Huorns will help and the hobbits sense them moving past them.
Treebeard and the hobbits The relationship between Treebeard and the hobbits is closer in the book than in the movie. Right in the beginning he says their paths may go together for a while and they spend quite some time together when Treebeard tells the hobbits a lot of stories about elves, Entwives and Saruman. In the movie Treebeard tells Merry and Pippin stories but naturally not so deeply as in the book.
