Trees are neat. They are so tall and regal and some have really teeny trunks that make you wonder how they even stand straight up. Trees also often pop up in works of fiction, the movies, and sometimes video games. Not just as beautiful scenery, oh no. As actual tree characters, sometimes even walking around and speaking dialogue. Anything is possible in fiction and make-believe, and these awesome fictional trees are cold hard proof.

What are the best tree characters ever? You probably loooooved Groot from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, or if you are a real fan, even in the comics before it was cool. Sadly for you, no one wants to hear about that, they just want to talk about Vin Diesel. Oh well. Other great fictional trees include the Giving Tree from that famous Shel Silverstein book you read as a kid, and Treebeard from The Lord of the Rings universe. What a cool tree he was. There are also tree characters in A Song of Ice and Fire, Harry Potter, and even a Frank Zappa song.

The task at hand is for you to vote up the best trees on this list of tree characters and to maybe even rerank it to make a list of your own. It's pretty fun, and these trees will thank you for considering them as the best.

If you are aware of yet another character that is an actual tree, in any work of fiction or even a video game, please add it for other tree lovers and all around fans of these super cool perennial plants to vote on.
