    Not to be boring and mundane, but big trees with brittle branches really *are* dangerous, it’s quite surprising the number of times I read about a falling branch killing somebody. Couple years back a falling branch killed an entire family in their car here in the Midwest.

      Probably even more mundane 🙂

      Any tree from the Rhus genus (Toxicodendron succedaneum) or with a vine from the same genus would require such a warning. They provoke extreme allergic reactions in most people.

      A few states in Australia prohibit growing them at all ($2000 fine) but all states will ask you to remove it if you have it growing.

      Could be one of these too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandbox_Tree

      Their bark, sap, roots, and leaves are all poisonous. They have spike covered bark. AND when their fruit is ripe they explode (not kidding) sending sharp sickle shaped seeds flying through the air.

      Nature is awesome, and it wants to kill you.

    Tom Bombadil’s finally put up a fence around Old Man Willow, I see.

    Not oddly specific at all, more just normally specific.

    Fail.

    Quick! warn Ron and Harry! They need to steer clear of that if they want to make it to Hogwarts before the feast starts. Dabby shouldn’t have blocked the door.

    No, not ‘Whomping Willow’ it’s far worse than that…

    It may be a ‘Buggering Birch’. Get too close and… No it’s too awful to describe…

  8. Aezira says:

    Just poke it with a stick…. duh.

    As it is nearly Halloween, I feel obligated to say this:

    Not a Whomping Willow. It’s a Slut-Eating Tree.

    LOOK OUT, JANET!

  10. heather says:

    You could say that its bite…

    *removes sunglasses*

    …is worse than its bark.

    YEEAAAAHH!

    Might wanna put this outside hogwarts.

  12. person guy says:

    don’t you remember the books? you were already at hogwarts when they rammed the tree (i’m a nerd i know :P)

    The Ents are on the loose.

  14. jodie says:

    it is obviously the whomping willow not some stupid poisonous tree ~8-D

  15. Donna says:

    Usually, you don’t have to worry about Ents, unless you’re a. an orc b. somebody with an axe.
    If this is a Huorn, though, all bets are off…

  16. Rather says:

    Maybe it’s a kite eating tree.
