Here is my minimal working example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage[moderate]{savetrees}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}[start=10]
  \item First
  \item Second
  \item Third
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}

This works fine, however.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage[subtle]{savetrees}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}[start=10]
  \item First
  \item Second
  \item Third
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}

The errors look like this:

! LaTeX Error: Something's wrong--perhaps a missing \item.

The moderate option of savetrees redefines lists to remove their indentation. From the savetrees documentation:

The first option, subtle, preserves all document layout and merely encourages LaTeX to try harder to pack text onto the page while introducing white space only when absolutely necessary. The second option, moderate, additionally reduces paragraph indentation, typesets lists and mathematical displays without indentation or surrounding vertical space, reduces interline spacing, and makes the font slightly narrower, if supported.

Since enumitem itself redefines the inner workings of lists, the moderate option for savetrees is partially incompatible with enumitem. That is, you can use moderate, but would have to switch the package load order; as such, your lists won't save trees anymore:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[moderate]{savetrees}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}[start=10]
  \item First
  \item Second
  \item Third
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}
