Whomping Willows

Chapter 3
Whomping Willows


Description:
The Whomping Willow is a very valuable, very violent species of magical plant. Whomping Willows attack anyone and anything that comes within range of its branches. A deciduous plant, its limbs function as arms and any damage to them must be treated in much the same way.

Famous Whomping Willows:
The most famous Whomping Willow is the one planted on the grounds of Hogwarts. The Whomping Willow was planted around the year 1971 to disguise the opening of a secret passage leading from the Hogwarts grounds to the Shrieking Shack in the village of Hogsmeade. This allowed Remus Lupin to travel unnoticed to and from the Shrieking Shack, where he was able to undergo his transformation as a werewolf in privacy.

Usage:
Whomping Willow's are used to protect a given location. They can also be used as weapons, in some cases.

Warning:
Do not approach these trees unless you are prepared to fight for your life. This tree has the capability to easy pound a grown man into the ground like a hammer pounds in a nail.
