Originally planted to guard the secret entrance to the Shrieking Shack, Hogwarts' Whomping Willow has since come to serve another purpose - a test of courage. Many a Hogwarts student has been dared to touch the valuable tree's trunk. More often than not, those who accepted the foolhardy challenge learned the hard way how violent this tree can be.
