Now that ''Lost'' has run its course, the image remains a potent title for the trope. No matter how absurd or irrational a theory (or tree) might seem, if it has enough ground, in the eyes of enough fans, it can spread new branches, seed new ideas, and eventually come to influence the entire work.

This is not only common, but expected for MindScrew series. A major species of Tree is EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory. An ongoing series which uses {{Chekhovs Gun}}s to the point of becoming a ChekhovsArmoury encourages Trees because all newly introduced objects/people/skills/etc will be suspected of being a ChekhovsGun. Horrible epileptic trees are known as PoisonOakEpilepticTrees. See StockEpilepticTrees for other common examples.

A term for wild, off-the-wall theories. Named after a leading [[TinfoilHat tinfoil-hat]] theory explaining the mysterious shaking, rustling trees on ''{{Lost}}'' during the first season of that program. The theory? The trees are having epileptic fits.
