If you are going to have a "Wood College" then add spells like one giving your body the consistency of a living tree, or one that causes spears of wood to shoot out of wooden objects and wall, or made them explode into razor sharp splinters.

Or alternatively forget about the "Wood College" and just give your druids a nature college that includes both animal and tree spells. Because you can do that.
Considering "Wood Collage" says "Defining a completely new Wood college is unnecessary. Simply use the Plant college and delete any spells that don’t fit the setting’s metaphysics." I don't understand how you two only see three spells.

Replace "Plant" with "Tree" (ie Seek Tree, Identify Tree, etc) and you get way more then just three spells. Sure it isn't the same breadth as Tree magic (T42-47) but is clearly more then three spells.
