* In ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor'', it is revealed that a tree monster was among the protections around the Gaunt Shack, but it's [[DeadToBeginWith already down]] by the time the heroes get there.

* In ''Fanfic/OneThousandTearzOrDeth'' a tree that proclaims itself the "demon of emoness" comes to life when our "heroes" stand in the forest. [[OneSceneWonder It doesn't do anything]], though.

* In ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', Maokai [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Twisted Treant]] is a tree brought to life by magic. His animation was not of his will, however, and more or less wants to [[DeathSeeker find a way to]] [[{{Pun}} return to his roots]], so to say.

There's also Ivern, the Green Father, though he's [[MartialPacifist very unlikely to attack anyone if he doesn't have a very good reason]]; most of the danger he poses comes from his friends, which include his teammates and a giant stone golem called Daisy.

* More a bush than a tree, but the tumbleweeds that add local color to movie Westerns can actually be rather dangerous, as they can grow to the size of an ATV and are covered in sharp edges and thorns. In drought years when they tend to flourish, large swarms of wind-blown tumblers have caused drivers to crash by covering their windshields, and their dry, bristling branches are highly inflammable, meaning if one gets blown through a campfire it can bounce along for miles, setting the countryside ablaze.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheGreenKnoweChronicles'', the ancient tree Green Noah that stands on the grounds of Green Knowe was afflicted by a gypsy curse which caused it to be [[DemonicPossession possessed by a demon]], allowing it to sometimes prowl around at night in search of victims (including, supposedly, [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters the witch who cursed it]]). It almost gets its leafy limbs on protagonist Tolly until DivineIntervention causes it to be struck by a bolt of lightning and destroyed.

* In Japanese folklore, the ''jubokko'' is a {{yokai}} created when a tree grows on the site of a battlefield where massive casualties were suffered. Having gained sentience and a taste for human blood from the blood-soaked soil, the ''jubokko'' grabs anyone who gets too close and drains them of their blood, leaving the body to be pecked at by scavenging birds.
