Not the tree's idea...

The tree did not want to go for a walk -- it was possessed by the ghost of the evil wizard. In fact, insofar as the tree was capable of understanding anything, it was aware that walking was very untreelike. Not quite as untreelike as deliberately setting oneself on fire, but close...

Now, Jayne seems to suggest that the tree had some degree of awareness even before it was possessed, so there is the potential for a larger-scale war story in which living but usually stationary things are used as vehicles and weapons (or slaves). A prequel to this tale might show an ancient battle between druids (or other nature / tree magic users) and more "civilized" enemies who use (say) alchemy or science as weapons.

Hey! Horrid puns are my department!

I can't beleaf you'd ignore the roots of bottomdweller's concerns. But I didn't twig to your seedy intentions in time, and had to endure your attempts to be humus.
