    I saw this video on YouTube... and it shocked me to the core. There is a man who got infected by a tree and now he's turned into part tree. It's... unbelievable! I have to share this and get thoughts on it. Is this fake..??

    Check it out:

    He wasnt "infected by a tree"

    Your post was a great laugh for me though. Thank you.

    The "Human Tree" has been on multiple TV specials over the past 5 years, I find no humor in his plight.

      Seems the market for the gross and the peculiar is alive and well,  I wonder who made all the profit from his appearance on all those shows, why he didn't he get enough payments to get it fixed earlier ?

        One of the shows involved something like 3 months of surgery , physical therapy and recovery. All of the expense covered by the show and the surgeon was donating his time.



        I believe Dede growths will always continue to grow back and each surgery is just a removal of growths that gives him some mobility back. Thats if I remember right.

        It ended with him finding another Tree friend and smoking lots of cigarettes

    Thankfully, he is now being treated and is much better.

    What a sight but I do hope he gets the medical attention he needs. Kudos to him!
