** They don't need to explode to kill you. Several subspecies of eucalyptus also known has Gum have a tendency to shed potentially rather large branches and for some of the species that does this, the bigger branches tend to weigh in at a good 15 or so pounds so that landing on your head from 10 or so feet is a good way to meet your maker.

* Durkon of ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has obviously read too many books that contain them since he thinks ''[[EnmityWithAnObject every]]'' tree is dangerous. (Why else would Thor's lightning strike them all the time?) His fear is justified when he meets an evil druid with a small army of trees. ** Not just him. His whole species hates trees: they launch WARS against them.

* The infamous Territorial Oaks, and their PaletteSwap Hostile Elder Oaks, from ''VideoGame/EarthBound''. These, by the way, '''[[MadeOfExplodium explode]]''' when you kill them. At the level you first encounter them, you usually survive only if you can press buttons fast enough to exit battle before your health meter runs out.

At the level you first encounter them, you usually survive only if you can press buttons fast enough to exit battle before your health meter runs out. Because of this, it's best to only fight them when they come in singles and, if other monsters are with it, to take it down last so that the damage doesn't count down for long before victory is declared, stopping the drain.

** [[http://magiccards.info/query?q=Liege+tangle&v=card&s=cname Liege of the Tangle]], while not a walking tree himself, can turn all of your lands into a vengeful army that can curbstomp dragons in their wake. While he can turn any land into this, his name and color implies trees (the Tangle is the forest part of Mirrodin, covered in copper trees).

* In ''Literature/TheIronTeeth'' web serial there are creatures known as mimics. Mimics disguise themselves as trees and prey on creatures that get too close. They're not actually moving trees though, they're somewhat like giant stick bugs or crabs that have symbiotic plants and leaves growing from them.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel'' had trees deciding to attack humankind for destroying so many of them (or more specifically Baboon's massive logging operation was the straw that broke the camel's back), so Weasel has to step in to make peace.
