to makin' minis, that's pretty good! I'm trying to think of more fun lingo we use but I'm drawing a blank... I'll have to come back and post when I think of something goofy
I have refined these terms to be more specific.

If your disc gets slapped down by a limb- treejection
hits last tree before green or first tree of tee- treenied
hits tree and goes toward (or into) basket- treebound
letting noob re-throw a tree shot- treedo

Default Tree related

From the list stored at DG Resources:
• Treebound-when your disc hits a tree and deflects in the direction of (or into) the basket/ fairway
• Treedirected- redirected by a tree
• Treedo- letting a player re-throw a tree shot; disc golf mulligan (must hit a tree to use one)
• Treeflection - the tree gives good kick
• Treejected- When your disc hits a tree and the trajectory changes to "right into the ground" and fast
• Treejectory - when your redirected by the branch
• Treemendous - when your errant shot finds wood and bounces in an auspicious way
• Treenied- when your disc hits a tree and drops; or when you are aiming for that tight little gap but hit the tree instead
• “That wasn't there last time I played this hole" and "Was that there when I teed off?"- said when hitting some long time obvious obstacle like a tree off the tee.
• "That would've been in if it wasn't for that tree." Especially appropriate when the tree is 10 feet from the tee box.

These are horrible terms and I could only really being used by people on a grandmasters card.

I wonder how far back in this thread I saw

Blowgie - when you blow your birdie putt and fail to save par for the 3-putt bogey. I unfortunately use this a lot after I'm pretty sure picking it up somewhere in this thread when I was brand new around these parts.

Some we came up with on our own-ish.
Jedi Mind Trick - when you talk to the disc and it seems to do what you are suggesting.

Looking for Easter Eggs. - c'mon walking around the long grass trying to find hidden round brightly colored objects

When someone hits a lot of trees in the round I always tell them they better "pray to treesus" to help them out.

Blowgie... that's a new one. I like it! Added to my personal list.

I often do "treesus be praised" when they get a good tree kick.

Words and phrases grow and evolve. Some people's use of words will expand our language, while others cling to the previously accepted definitions as the only correct way. This is no different.
Star (asterisk) is a computer wildcard for 'everything'. If I were looking for a file, but did not know the extension, I would search for 'DiscGolfFile.*'

Note: I'm not saying it didn't come from bowling. Or computers. Or anywhere.
