Creepy, Scary Halloween and Horror Trees

Trees are among the most compelling props to use at times you want to produce a fright in someone, making them fantastic for being part of your Halloween fright decorations.

In this article we'll look at a few photos of trees in nature that give of their own evil aura, with some being downright creepy. These trees don't need much encouragement or alteration (if it were possible naturally) to make them look scary - they already are.

Picture walking in the early morning or late evening when the sun is going down and running into these trees. They'll give you a good startle for sure.

I think the first tree below is the most scary of all, and would totally freak me out if I was walking nonchalantly along - without paying much attention - and suddenly coming upon the image of what appeared to be someone looking out from, or as, the tree lying on the ground. That color also adds a touch of what almost looks similar to the color of the skin of some people, making it even more believable. Very creepy!

This next tree is really great. While not as scary as the first tree, in my opinion, it does have a lot of character going for it, in the sense of adding a ominous mood to any situation you may walk or gaze upon it. Add to that the right background of dusk or dawn and you have an awesome scene to interact with. If someone had a tree like this in their yard it would be really cool to add some fake Halloween props to make it even more scary than it looks.

The next couple of creepy trees have similar looks, with the most disturbing to me being the bottom one because of the opening at the bottom of the tree that looks like a mouth. How weird and strange would it be to come upon that unexpectedly in the dark?

That's the only problem I have with these two trees - they should have been shot in the dark in order to get the best effects. Even so, as you can see, they are definitely going to scare people in the right circumstance, and would also work fantastic with additional, scary Halloween props.
