The snake can't be hanging "from" the tree and not "in" the tree???

I'm not entirely sure what you're asking, but the construction i trädet would be way more common.

Thank you for the answer :) I wasn't talking about the Swedish version but the English translation. I might of course be wrong...

So if you wanted to avoid the "there is" construction, and just say "A long black snake hangs in the tree", you would say "Lång start orm hänger i trädet"?
