Whomping Willow
The Whomping Willow is a very valuable magical tree on the Hogwarts grounds. The tree is extremely violent, striking viciously with its branches at anything that comes within reach.

Headmaster Albus Dumbledore planted the Willow to guard a secret passageway to the Shrieking Shack, a building in Hogsmeade. In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry and Ron Weasley flew an enchanted Ford Anglia to Hogwarts, and accidentally crashed into the Whomping Willow, causing minor damage to the tree but more significant harm to the car. In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, after a Quidditch match of Gryffindor vs Hufflepuff, Harry's Nimbus 2000 flies into the Whomping Willow and is smashed to bits. Also later in the book Sirius Black, having transformed himself into a dog, dragged Ron Weasley into the secret passageway beneath the tree.
