Faces Carved Into Trees Is A Mystifying Spectacle

While these are absolutely awesome to look at, we can't help but think that some of the trees can't have been too stoked about it. Also, just imagine crossing paths with one of these faces in the middle of a forest when the sun's going down and the eerie vibes of isolation in nature are already running amok. Just a little bit of yikes.

Tumblr Thread : Trees Are Low Key Monsters

If there's one inevitable and unsettling takeaway that you'll likely have from this Tumblr post about various kinds of trees, it's that trees are very weird and we should all be slightly frightened by them. This post reminds us of the other Tumblr thread about the monster plant that is the Kudzu. Maybe one day, humans will peace out from earth, take our troubles elsewhere, and leave the arboreal overlords to roam and rule over the earth.

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.
