The Scary Trees are anthropamorphic trees with figures which resemble tall gaunt humanoids. They have faces with large wailing expressions but empty sockets and their branches outstretch to resemble arms.
Disneyland Fun/Let’s Go to Disneyland Paris
- The trees resemble similar scary anthropamorphic trees which appear both in the Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937) and it's park attraction Snow White's Scary Adventures. The ride features a scene in which guests traverse the scary woods from the movie which was fittingly enough designed by imagineer Claude Coats who was a predominate force behind the Haunted Mansion. Also one of the major animators behind Snow White was Ken Anderson, another power player in the creation of the Haunted Mansion.
- In the original blueprints for the attraction they were reffered to as "Mechanical Trees" and were intended to turn and face the guests in their Doom Buggies as they passed by similar to the trees in the attraction Snow White's Scary Adventure. It is unknown why this effect was abandonned.
- It is unknown whether the trees are sentient or merely corrupted by the twisted nature of the Mansion to resemble dark figures. If they are sentient it is unknown if they are their own indapendent beings or posessed by spirits.
