The title of your thread is "trees and lakes on mars." However, these images truly are "what appear to be trees and lakes" or "what may or may
not be trees and lakes on mars." You can't jump to conclusions based on pictures of what look like vegetation and lakes.
The lakes do look like lakes, but they could be from millions (billions?) of years ago, when water was still abundant on mars (ie. no water in them
The vegetation I am still undecided on. It looks to me more like formations or cracks on the ground. (there is a lack of depth to the "trees" -
just compare it to trees on Google Earth)
Anyways, I think what we really need is more detailed, modern images of these areas before we can decide anything. The stuff in the pictures
definitely seems out of place, but I don't think we can declare them as trees and lakes yet.
