* English folklore has the rhyme "Elm do brood, and oak do hate, but the willow walks when you travel late". Oak coppices were thought to be full of Oakmen, vengeful fairies who fed travellers poisonous fungi. Willows were thought to uproot themselves after dark, to walk behind travellers and mutter.
* In Welsh mythology there's the story of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cad_Goddeu Cad Goddeu]] (The Battle of the Trees), in which the enchanter Gwydion animated the trees of the forest to serve as his army. There's a poem about it in [[http://www.maryjones.us/ctexts/t08.html The Book of Taliesin]].
