Haha, sorry to bring up such an old thread (and from a different website on top of that)! You're literally the only other person I could find that's made a Treefolk/Shaman mixed deck and I feel like it might have potential. Well, one that uses both Harbingers at least.
As far as cards that are both Shaman/Treefolk, there's Bosk Banneret and Leaf-Crowned Elder that might work well. Neither would dilute the deck since they're shamans as well. Just not sure if the Elder is quick enough for modern. The only non-Shaman card I'd consider adding is Treefolk Harbinger and that's to find one of the two trees, depending on the situation, or a Forest.
Or do you think the deck would perform better without Treefolk Harbinger and Leaf-Crowned Elder?

There are decent ideas and I'm happy you decided to make your first deck a Treefolk brew. There are however quite alot to work on here even if it's meant just for casual games. I don't know if you've ever looked into any deck building guides, but you mana curve is really important to be in line with your lands and ramp. Now your curve is super dependant on LUCK, which is not great. Unless you have consistent ways to cheat out your excessive amounts of 6 drops, you shouldn't have that many or they will clog your hand. I'll list a few semi-budget changes that will help.
Go up to full playset on Treefolk Harbinger, cause it tutors up any creature you need from your deck and that allows you to go down on the quantity of big threats.
Emerald Medallion is nice on mono color, but the heavyness really calls for more Bosk Bannerets or Medallions. Medallion is better when it's in your opening hand, since it drops topdecked Bosk to a 1-drop, but Bosk is tutorable with Harbinger (Might not matter which you run more of, so go with your gut.)
These couple swaps helps with consistency:
You don't need full playsets of any big drops if you go with 4 Harbingers.
All the greatest treefolks are ridiculously expensive, but if you ever want to invest little by little and keep your Tribal/Zoo theme, I suggest looking into my primer here Treefolkdancing my way to competitive scene!.

@HarrisonHarry: You need more 4-ofs. I would play something like this:
4x Arbor Elf
4x Dauntless Dourbark
4x Dungrove Elder
2x Kalonian Twingrove
2x Primeval Titan
4x Sakura-Tribe Elder
4x Bosk Banneret
2x Timber Protector
3x Leaf-Crowned Elder

Treefolk Harbinger would also fit like a glove, even as a 4-of, since it can fetch both cards you need to get the ball rolling Bosk Banneret and Leaf-Crowned Elder + Forest if needed. I dare say it could greatly improve consistensy.

I feel like Tajuru Preserver, Loaming Shaman, Vexing Shusher are very specific for the main deck and should probably be used in the sideboard against mill, stax, and counters. I also think that Kumano, Master Yamabushi is a drain on your mana that doesnt fit with the fast pace. Eternal Witness is mostly better suited for decks playing more spells and 3 mana for a 2/1 is weak compared to the other creatures.
With that being said, red decks run Lightning Bolt almost as an auto-include. Burning-Tree Emissary fits persectly with your ramp and I feel like having some more cheaper creatures would be great for early game. Shaman also is not the cheapest tribe, so while you do have Bosk Banneret, I feel like Urza's Incubator would do very well. Rakka Mar adds a faster aspect for the deck, and Signal the Clans is always some fun. Hope this helps! I could see this struggling with turbo fog, and if you run into board wipes you're not gonna have a fun time.
As for me, I'm very excited for GotG2, but more so for the Pirates of the Caribbean 5! I love those movies so much. My life has been all right, there isn't too much news from up in Maine. You?

Slagwurm Armor is pretty great. Just an equipment with a +6/+6 buff for a mere 4 colorless mana.
Treefolk Harbinger is a strong 1-drop tutor that also has a high toughness.
Silklash Spider does an incredible job of protecting you from fliers, plus it's effectively a 7/7 to boot.
Oathsworn Giant gives your entire team a massive anthem boost and vigilance, which is a really relevant ability given all your high toughness creatures.
Behind the Scenes is interesting since most of your creatures have low power and skulk will make them unblockable, but Doran then assigns high damage afterwards. It also pumps your creatures in a pinch.
Bosk Banneret ensures your high-power (or should I say, toughness) Treefolk will hit the board sooner.
Spidersilk Armor is another anthem effect with Doran, plus it gives you another way to counter fliers.
Nyx-Fleece Ram has a high toughness-to-cost ratio and buffers your life a little bit.
Deadwood Treefolk gives you a small amount of recursion, which is always useful and powerful.
