Tree hops is a skip that allows Jak to get the hidden power cell in Mountain Pass on the zoomer without using yellow eco. With enough blue eco, Jak can get enough speed on the zoomer to get a large jump off of a small rock on the ground. Jak can then jump from tree to tree to make it over the rock that blocks your path to the power cell.
