Resilient Trees that Don't Give A Heck

Trees seem incapable of caring where they are or what they're doing. And we respect them for that. They could be on a cliff, in a pole, or be a hungry tree enveloping stuff and they wouldn't even give a rip. Not only do trees not care, sometimes people don't give a heck, and the results are wild.

Trees Munching on Stuff

When it comes to man made stuff versus trees, it's easy for us to win the battle, but over time, vegetation wins the war. In only a few years trees overgrow the stuff we shove into them and cover them with, and it looks remarkably like they're straight up eating it. It's common to see hungry trees enveloping stuff.

Here are some trees that munched on the stuff around them, which turned out to be a whole lot of bikes and abandoned weapons.
