* The shambler trees (actually a mutually-supporting ecology of plant-like creatures) in the sci-fi series ''Literature/TheWarAgainstTheChtorr''. The shambler tree and its [[GiantFlyer carnivorous tenants]] harvest an area, then move on at a rate of a kilometre a day. "A Season for Slaughter" goes into unsettling detail explaining how such a tree could walk (it has to virtually become an animal) and [[ManEatingPlant how it feeds]].

* In ''Videogame/DarkSoulsIII'', the Curse-Rotted Greatwood is a huge tree that the locals once used as a garbage disposal for curses. The curses gave the tree unnatural life. [[spoiler:The pale arm that bursts out of the tree midway through the fight implies that ''something'' is incubating in it.]]

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', the Seducing Woods is made up largely of mobile, sentient trees. The forest got its name in that it lures visitors in with its smells of desserts and appealing look, then traps them in there by having the trees move about so the visitors never escape. When some of the Straw Hat Pirates find themselves in the Seducing Woods and discover the secret (that the trees are mobile), their immediate solution is to destroy as many of these trees as possible so as to limit the trees' capacity to trick people.
