Bizarre Trees That Eat Everything In Front Of You

Beware of the terrifying trees whose bite is worse than their bark

HungryTrees 01 You would expect trees to be all bark and no bite but these images show that many have a huge appetite for chewing on everyday objects.

Whether it be motorbikes, cycles, cars, warning signs, fences or even a gravestone, this forest of photos show that they will consume anything in their path.

Although the majority were taken in America, there are several taken at spots elsewhere in the world, including a hungry British tree devouring a central London red post box that was placed too close to its trunk.

The images have become an internet sensation with many logging on to hungrytrees.com to look at them or add their own photos of famished ferns, starving spruces or ravenous rosewoods.

Incredibly, to get to this stage, the trees have usually been slowly eating these items over the course of 30 years.
