Do not walk into this tree.
Where would one go to see a tree like this? It gives thorns a whole new meaning.
This tree is called the Honey Locust and is native to the Midwest area of the U.S. I was crawling around undeveloped forest the other day looking for interesting things to photograph. My brother came across this by walking into it. He's got puncture wounds....
How'd he miss it?
That certainly is one tree i wouldnt want to run into...
I did a search on the Impaler Tree, and came up with nothing. Are you sure those thornes aren't from a vine of some kind using the tree as a host?
It's not actually called an Impaler Tree
Actually i thought it looked sorta like something my mum had in her yard - it appears we have it in Aus also - The one we had though was a lot smaller than that looks
You know it's mean when even the thorns have thorns!
