Total = 2243
PD = 7 Dispel= 10
all three units of dryads will contain a branch wraith, one will also contain Drycha.
List looks fairly dispell oriented but not alot of bang on the magic side but should be able to push woods where ever is needed to control the attacks.
Input is welcome as I would like to tweek as much as possible to make it a capable list.
Firstly, Spites are like Magic Items: you can only ever have one of each type of Spite per army. So only one of your Branchwraiths can have a Cluster of Radiants. Given that Drycha already has TWO Clusters of Radiants, she not only acts as the exception to this rule by dint of being a Special Character but she also precludes any other characters from having either a Cluster of Radiants or Blight of Terrors.
Branchwraiths are okay, but I don't think you need four of them. I'd probably drop at least one of them, along with the Elder from the Treekin unit and enough Dryads to bring your unit sizes to ten.
Also, there is little value in the Wild Hunter upgrades on the Wild Rider units as it's not likely that there will be any characters in the unit to protect form challenges and paying that amount of points for what amounts to an extra attack seems a little excessive.
My advice would be thus:
Drop a Branchwraith (the one with Despairs) and the Clusters of Radiants that you can't take.
Drop 2 Dryads from each of the larger Dryad units.
Drop the Treekin unit down to 3 models and don't bother with an Elder.
Drop the Wild Hunters from the Wild Rider units.
Add a second Treeman.
Use any points left to add Dryads, unit champions or Spites back in as appropriate.
That should end up being pretty solid.

Thanks for the fast responses.
I see now what you were saying about the spites however, the last line of the choosing spites state "However, treeman Ancients and Branchwraiths may have any number of Spites, to the limit of their allowance (100 and 50 points resectively)." Doesn't this mean that they can have more than one, just not two of the same in one army?
I was thinking of putting back in another treeman, and I can see what you mean with the rider champs.
I will take a look at the other switches that have been suggested.
That line you had is in a context within the paragraph it was taken from. It outright states that you cannot take multiples of the same item. It also mentions that characters can only take 1 spite, with the ones you mentioed the exception to the rule.
as you can see, multiple branchwraiths aren' the answer. I'd bring 2 at the most, and either a wildrider noble or a glamourweave caddy (or both).
Is there an official ruling on not taking radients on a branchwraith and Drycha at the same time?
don't think there is but RAW seems to suggest that with drycha allready having radience it seems that you can't take more radience on the other branchwraiths.
Yeah, I can see that. There certainly is a case for it. I knew a Red Shirt that had a 3K Drycha list though, and I thought he had Radiants on his Treeman Ancient.
I'm 90% certain of it. So i was thrown a little.
I personally don't use Drycha, because I find a BSB works better than teleportation in Combat lists.
That said, I played a list like this one, I'd suggest taking a TMA and a Battle Standard Bearer before Drycha. The higher leadership combined with the re-rolling break tests will be a huge benifit I think.
The Drycha list basically ought to use Drycha and munch loads of Dryads, so as to take advantage of her special deployment rules. I don't think you have enought units for that to be safe, (some will never come in) and I don't think she adds enough to ur list if you don't, as you're losing build points on special rules you will not be taking advantage of.
