I wish your tidings were better.
To find the next piece of the rod, you'll have to find the key to open the chest it's in.
The wooden key is on one of the treants northeast of here near the Felwood border, at the Howling Vale[54, 40]. Once you have it, look for a small glade through the tunnel at the vale. The chest should be hidden around there.
It upsets me so that the treants have become corrupt. I wish I could do more to help them.
I'm pleased to see you're back, <name>.
