The movie is a Der weiße Hai (1975) parody and many lines are direct references: "That's the thing about trees... they're silent like the night! They don't make a noise... they just stand there." "Everyone out of the woods!" "This was no lawnmower accident!" "We tell them there's a killer tree on the loose, and you've got pandemonium on Memorial Day!" "Jim, if you open up those campgrounds on Memorial Day, well, it's like opening up a buffet, for chrissakes!" "Apparently, a great white pine has staked its claim to the woods around Hazelville." "A cage won't work with that tree!" "Didn't they say on TV they caught the tree?" "You're gonna need a bigger axe."
