Tree Woman

Enemy Type Unknown
Weakness Fire
Resistances Lightning
Immune Poison, Toxic, Frost

Tree Woman (also called Birch Woman) is an Enemy in the Ashes of Ariandel DLC.

 Enemy Description

  • A white tree taking a feminine shape, with long brances for arms.
  • There are three types: regular Tree Women that attack with an icy breath, Smoldering Tree Women which release a mass of slow, homing flames, can be indentified by the small flames on the tips of their branches; and Mad Tree Woman which will crawl at you and swipe the brances wildly to attack you. 

Combat Information

  • Both types can grab the player, it appears it's not possible to button mash your way out of the grab.
  • Deals physical or fire damage. 
  • Can stretch their arms to attack the player.
  • Will perform an Ice breath attack that damages the player and builds up Frostbite.
  • Staggered by fire.
  • Can be Lured?
  • Can be Rapported?

 

Notes & Trivia

  • Many Tree Women are no longer able to move and only serve as regular harmless trees, unable to attack or be attacked.
  • Their roots actually act like tiny legs that they move forward with, albeit very slowly.
  • Tree Woman guarding Snap Freeze has an unused dialogue connected with Pontiff Sulyvahn, a mandatory boss from Dark Souls III. Also, she attacks in similar way, as unused sprite from Bed of Chaos, a boss met in Dark Souls I.
  • To distinguish a hostile Tree Woman from a harmless tree, look at their hair. If the hair is flowing in the wind, then it's an enemy. If it's not moving, it's just a tree.

      I remember trying to get the followers javelin weapon and one of these things following me all the way to it. I turned around after picking it up to see a tree lady just there ready to kill me with 50 homing flames. I never went back into ariandel again.

        The Tree Lady guarding the Snap Freeze spell crawls around in a suspicously representative way of Bed of Chaos' unused sprite where she was supposed to crawl after you.

          Kill it with fire. Anyone notice that the hair on this thing is very similar to the hair of the sewer centipedes?

            There are actually two types. The normal tree women and then there is one special woman at the bottom of the ravine guardian a frost spell.
            They're all vulnerable to fire and will squirm if hit with firebombs etc. They seem to be resistant to lightning, as I had a hard time killing them on my cleric.

            The normal women can either summon little homing flames or they can puke a flow of frost.Both are homing and go through trees(confirmation please).
            They can grab a player inflicting frost damage. Alternatively they also have some deceptively long range striking attacks.

            The tree guarding the frost spell isn't a whole lot tougher, but it's likely to charge you if you get close and thrash around. It's much more aggressive than the other women.
            I think it has the same moveset as the other plus the charging and flailing.

            If you can get behind a tree woman, one cast of pillars of light usually kills them outright. (60 faith, first born ring)
