Let’s take a little break from controversy, here. We all love trees and have seen our share of cool stuff, out there, in the “woods”. There are two options here. You can send me ( lhfotoware (at) hotmail.com) a picture of your “interesting” tree, and I will post it below. Feel free to add a caption, and I will add that, too. Or, you can describe your tree in the comments. There is nothing to win, except for our undying respect. Also, you can rate the trees, if you want to.
This ponderosa pine was along a trail, below the rim, in Bryce Canyon National Park. This tree swoops back to the ground before going vertical again. It actually has a decent, healthy crown. The bark has a true spiral, and I really don’t know why the tree ended up like this. I did see a similar tree during my last trip to Bryce Canyon.
Thomas promptly sent me this lonely pine, standing proud and healthy.
This anonymous contribution of a cedar tree growing out of a very old stump (including a historical springboard notch) is quite interesting.
This urban Douglas-fir looks to be growing very well, with full sunlight. Thanks louploup.
Most of us know what “wolfy” trees are. They seem to use more energy in developing strong branches, rather than a straight and tall bole. I think we need to plant some of these trees into openings, where they can thrive, as future nest trees.
Thanks to Mike D. for submitting this exceptional image of larch crowns in the fall.
Now, here is an impressively-odd tree, sent in by Dr. Bob Z. That’s a burly set of trees, alright!
