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.
Made my day haha
Tom Bombadil’s finally put up a fence around Old Man Willow, I see.
Kudos to the LOTR reference 😀
Thumbs up for the Harry Potter reference! 😀
lol u rock HP references RULE
amazing ~8-D <- harry poter smiley
Not oddly specific at all, more just normally specific.
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.
what about me?
You were smart enough not to fly a car to school.
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…
Just poke it with a stick…. duh.
in the right spot, no less
As it is nearly Halloween, I feel obligated to say this:
Not a Whomping Willow. It’s a Slut-Eating Tree.
LOOK OUT, JANET!
You could say that its bite…
…is worse than its bark.
Might wanna put this outside hogwarts.
don’t you remember the books? you were already at hogwarts when they rammed the tree (i’m a nerd i know :P)
Are you responding to Hermione? Serious reply fail.
The Ents are on the loose.
it is obviously the whomping willow not some stupid poisonous tree ~8-D
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…
Maybe it’s a kite eating tree.
