Very rarely in nature do you come across a lifeform with the ability to heal and adapt like the common tree.  In this picture example, taken at Six Flags over Texas in October of 2007, we see a tree growing around and consuming an electrical box that had been secured into its side years before.  In a few more years, the tree will completely swallow the box leaving no evidence except for an odd lump in the trunk.  If you look closely, you can see the tree is also starting to swallow the electrical cords as well.
