Default Trétrold as a PC race

I enjoyed reading the "Tree People" article in the Pyramid Dungeon Collection. I'm intrigued by the idea of sessile trees sending a spiritual projection of themselves on adventures. This made me also wonder about motile plants as a possible race for PCs.

The trétrold from Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 is a good beginning since they aren't overly monstrous. As they stand, however, they're too powerful. Perhaps, though, there are young saplings that occasionally team up with regular adventurers to go on quests. Has anyone tried speccing them out as a DFRPG-style race? Can they be made unique and interesting without costing more than 40 points (the current maximum cost for Cat-Folk)?

I have my own version of Tree Folk but there not suitable for adventures and I may create a sub species that is.
I like the Tree Folk write up.
Basically drop the Clairsentience [245] and No Legs (Sessile) [-50] and you have an affordable playable race.
Add the profession package and I get a 55 point race,including its primary profession.
That leaves an effective combat character, though not that tough and plenty of points in a DF game for more stuff or a hybrid class type lens.
