So the point of this list is that I will have ONE unit of 60 Glade Guard with a 5+ wardsave. This unit will not stand at the back, but it will actually move forward 5" every turn to get close to the enemy and hammer STR 4 arrows.
The list is called Tree Hugger List because the 60elf unit Stays VERY close to the units of Treekin and Treemen. (Trees flank slightly ahead of the elves o that if elves are charged, we can counter charge). 2 Treemen should alway be close and parallell so that if the enemy charges 1, they charge both, enforcing 2 x Strangleroots in the stand and shoot phase.
The Glade Guard can go in 20x3 to get 50 arrows a round. when it gets close to combat it can reform to be 10x6 to get 3 ranks of mele attacks if it is charged. Banner of Spring Tide will ensure they get their STR 4 arrows off first and a full 30 mele attacks before the enemy hits you.
Wardancers guard the flank from any fast cav or 'reinforcement types'.

The main weakness of this unit is the spell "dwellers from below" that will kill half a unit each time, and you don't have much antimagic in your list (at least not enough for 3000 points).
i agree with super sorcerer.. You have far to little magic defence!
I'd consider dropping the power stone and rhymers harp and go for a wand of wych elm on you weaver instead. Or maybe dropping the dancers and get a spellsinger with divination orb and a scroll. The Dwellers Below spell makes ALL saves worthless. The model fail the strength test and it's dead! So You have to stop that. And if the enemy doesn't use that he can still have many other spells that make you take toughness test or die, he can have warmachines and that enormous unit is a pretty easy target.
Love the consept, but you should really think about how to defend that massive unit before you try it or it's not gonna last long.
