'''Quickbeam''', or in [[Sindarin]] '''Bregalad''', was one of the younger [[Ents]] of [[Fangorn Forest]] belonging to the people of [[Skinbark]]. His name was given because of uncharacteristic hastiness.  
  
The [[rowans|rowan]]-trees in his keeping (among them [[Carnimírië]], [[Lassemista]], and [[Orofarnë]]) suffered greatly at the hands of [[Saruman]]'s [[Orcs]], so he was the first ent to make his mind up at the [[Entmoot]]. He sheltered, in his [[Ent-houses|home]], the two [[Hobbits|hobbit]]s, [[Meriadoc Brandybuck|Merry]], and [[Peregrin Took|Pippin]] while the other ents made up their minds at the entmoot. He played a great part in the Ents' resulting [[Battle of Isengard|attack]] on [[Isengard]].
