Used in the movie "The Mack"

Literally the Shade Tree that everyone sits under to rest. A guy that stupidly supports and provides wealth for a whore, her family and her bastard children.
Excerpt from the movie "The Mack":

A motion you do when someone is SO unbelievably shady, that all you can do is put your arms over your head, like you're a shade tree. You must declare "Shade Tree" while shade tree-ing, so that the person understands how extremely shady they are.
"Dude you're such a shade tree" *Does shade tree motion*
