Beechbone was one of the younger Ents who lived in Fangorn Forest, and was said to be a very tall and handsome Ent.


Little is known of Beechbone, except that that he took part in the Destruction of Isengard with the other Ents on March 3, 3019. He was caught on fire there by gas let out by the Uruk-hai, and apparently burned to death. However, this even further angered the other Ents, rousing them to finish destroying Isengard.[1]

Portrayal in adaptionsEdit

The Lord of the Rings film trilogyEdit

In Peter Jackson's film adaptation, an Ent presumed to be Beechbone is briefly seen being set on fire by Orcs using flaming arrows. He survives, however, by extinguishing himself in the flood caused by the dam being broken.
