It's common knowledge in Australia that you don't pitch your tent under a tree, alive or dead. I imagine that's because Eucalyptus trees have a habit of dropping large limbs without warning (it's an adaptation to survive droughts).

The other reason of course is because of the drop bears.

Eucalyptus are rather notoriously bad about that, moreso than many other trees. I've witnessed them make a widow, or widower, in this case.
