    Has anyone ever used a tree in a defensive way?

    No? Yes?

    Well, I do.

    Picking up a seed of any kind of tree, rushing the enemy base and throwing it into the enemy structure, allows that tree to grow, smashing the enemies structure.

    Added Bonus: Trees take time to fell/move the wood blocks/seed, so your team has more of a chance to rush into the building.

    Discuss this :D

    Great to place in open doors, that are built on dirt, or after destroying the saw in their wood farm, moving the trees around to destroy the tree-holder-up ers

    Usually I wouldn't carry a seed into battle, just use one if I see the oppurtunity.

    I came to this thread expecting phallic tree reskins but leave with an interesting tactic.

    I never even realized that trees could be weapons of destruction. This is awesome.

    Builder used Oak Seed! It's super effective!

    I didn't think they broke through structures.

    When platforms were less scalable, I used to use trees as a ladder/block prevention system in front of doors so doors couldn't be blocked or climbed over (cant build on tree space), usually integrated into a saw trap mechanism. It's less effective with the new platforms though.

    You can also place defensive trees at the base of your towers to provide camo and prevent the enemy builders from putting a door blocker. (although the tree will almost always be being cut down by knights on both teams)

    I made a thread a way while back that talked about how you could use trees to break blocks offensively. Don't know if it can still be done, but yeah.

    On topic.

    I used to steal seeds from enemy base to make them... ¿"woodless"?

    But this strategy sounds nice to me, have to test it!

    Your offensive tree is very different to my offensive tree:

    I don't remember that tree's are capable of destroying block's. I only remember seed's that fail to grow for a couple of second's disappear and here I come to my inference, thanks for destroying your team's tree's.
