A «Treant Sapling» (トレント・サプリング, Torento Sapuringu?) is a monster found in the Forest of Wavering Mists on the 3rd Floor of Aincrad in Sword Art Online.


A Treant Sapling is a withered tree with a pale trunk fifteen centimetres in diameter and two metres in height, comparatively smaller than the old trees in the forest.[1] Pale lights shine in the two small knotholes in its bark and its branches stretching out to the sides wave like slender claws.[1]


One of the Treant Sapling's abilities is the capability of not triggering the player's Searching skill as long as it stands perfectly still.[1]

While Kirito was explaining about the Forest of Wavering Mists on December 14, 2022, Asuna notified him that a monster was watching them. The Treant Sapling stared at Kirito for a few seconds, then pulled out its roots out of the ground and began walking towards him. As the tree suddenly began dashing at full-speed, the tree opened its third knothole and the tree howled. After three minutes, Kirito cut off both of its arm branches with his Anneal Blade +6 and Asuna penetrated its mouth with her Wind Fleuret +5, causing the tree to explode into polygons.
