Portralis has a "Grow Trees" spell effect that lets you create trees, so it's kind of similar. Can be combined with many Ranger abilities!

Portralis also has something like this in one of the Mage's abilities. Elemental Lord has an elemental variation of this.

Not exactly the same thing, but I have implemented elemental damages field in Portralis, which will cause damages to enemies stepping into them.

Portralis has quite a few things I'm sure you'd like, but keep in mind that it's extremely different from Z.
