These Trees Eat Things. Seriously.

Posted: Updated:

We may try to control it, but nature really can't be tamed.

Case in point -- these hungry, hungry trees munching on everything from signs, to cars to entire buildings.

Most of these photos were collected from an amazing Reddit page called TreesSuckingOnThings, and apparently, there are quite a few trees out there waging mini-battles to reclaim their land. The devouring of these objects could be considered a form of accidental arborsculpture, where trees are forced to grow in certain patterns through pruning, grafting or manipulation.

Basically, put anything from a bicycle to a pruning shears in the way of a tree, and over time, it'll just grow around it.

Take a look at more photos of these incredible plants below, and tweet us @HuffPostGreen if you have any shots of hungry trees near you.
