Falling trees are a type of obstacle which are only seen in Crash Twinsanity. They are large trees which essentially stand before a large gap that Crash wouldn't be able to jump. When TNT crates or Nitro crates (which are usually triggered by a Detonator Crate) explode near them, they collapse, creating a walkway across the gap. There are roughly five found in the the entire game.
