Tredwell, 32, went wicketless in four overs, conceding 27 runs - 18 of them by way of huge sixes to Chris Gayle - as the hosts produced a storming finish to secure a five-wicket win with seven balls to spare at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown.
England posted a below-par 152-7, despite another good knock from Jos Butler, who cracked 67 from 43 balls, however the West Indies made a blistering start, putting on 34 in the opening three overs.
England managed to regain a foothold and looked favourites to win with the hosts needing 31 from the final three overs, only for a blistering 30 from nine deliveries from Darren Sammy to turn the tide of the game in the final two overs with a barrage of boundaries.
Two days earlier the West Indies recorded a 27-run win in the opening t20, though Tredwell did claim the crucial wicket of Gayle LBW in a tidy spell of 1-16 from four overs.
He did not fare so well with the bat, being run-out for one with the game on the line with the final ball of the 19th over.
The third and final t20 is on Thursday evening GMT before England fly to Bangladesh to prepare for the ICC t20 World Cup.
