I also tried an HDR photo yesterday and though it succeeded in getting both the trees and the sky clearly visible in the picture, something feels really off about it to me. Maybe it is just because I know it is a processed photo. And that I was there and know it didn't look like that.

That's because the sky is too bright, and the picture has too much sharpness in the trees, which kills the coherence between skies and trees and make it look dead.

Try taking a picture with a darker sky, either by using a different angle or time of day

@martijn Interesting, thank you. I'll see whether I can take these insights into account another time.
