Fladrif, also known as Skinbark, was an ent of Fangorn Forest, and was one of the first Ents in Middle-earth. By the end of the Third Age, only he, Leaflock, and Treebeard remained of the original Ents.[1]

Skinbark lived on the mountain slopes west of Isengard. Saruman's Orcs ravaged this area, cutting down trees and killing Ents. Skinbark was wounded by the orcs and retreated far up the mountain slopes to live among the birches that he favored, refusing to come down. He did, however, take part in the Destruction of Isengard.

Portrayal in adaptations Edit

Skinbark appears in The Two Towers film along with many other ents of Fangorn forest. He is seen at the Entmoot called by Treebeard, and later takes part in the destruction of Isengard, where he is seen crushing dozens of orcs by rolling a boulder.
