My contribution to #ThickTrunkTuesday is this shot of one of our Old Growth Douglas Firs in our yard. This is Lily (yes we name our trees), and it has been determined by a pro Arborist that she is between 250 and 300 years old. At the max of that range, it means she was a seedling in 1723, when #Oregon was just a wild territory populated by Native Americans. That would be 81 years before the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

My thoughts are with the people in the Halifax area of Nova Scotia as evacuations due to wildfires are underway. (Artwork has a stained glass effect and is not real stained glass.)

It can’t go up front; there’s already: one Cottonwood, two Hazelnuts, two Choke Cherries, two Elderberries, a Slippery Elm, and a Maple. Lining the driveway: one Bigleaf Maple, one Japanese Maple, one Oak, one Ponderosa Pine, a Walnut, and a Photinia. So… somewhere in back, with the Apples, Pears, Walnuts, Hazelnuts, Cherries, Plums, Quince, Medlar, the ancient Willow, an Oak, the Fig, and Witch Hazel.
(Had to edit a few times, as I wander around looking for a spot).

This is one of my more #abstract versions of my tree artwork with a stained glass effect. I call it Tree Energy.

I finally repotted the volunteer saplings in the larger pots. I think they’re elm, but not sure. I had them growing in the begonia planters for a few years. We’ll see how it goes.

#treeSaplings #treeHugger #gardener

Two 1-gallon pots with the saplings repotted on the paved pathway beside the lawn. They have green buds on the thin branches now, although they’re hard to see against the green grass.

In the far background, you can see my flowerbed with the perennials coming back to life.

#wild #plants (mostly wild violets) have self seeded themselves in #moss & natural mulch - at the base of a curvy #cedar #tree that hangs over a creek.

Several oak trees were killed last autumn along a path I walk, where private land meets a nature reserve. The private landowners needed to build an awful barbed wire fence apparently, in addition to stripping the land bare anywhere near it. So I planted some of the acorns that were left behind. Meet Baby Oak. (And fuck that new metal fence, actually.) (Except not literally I guess)

A closeup of a tiny new oak tree sapling. The background is white, the pot it’s growing in is green, the stem is fragile and green, the leaves are unfolding and slightly golden.

Just found out about #ThickTrunkTuesday and I'm all for it. My inaugural pic for this hashtag is the thickest I've ever seen, from 2016 in #Sequoia #NationalPark

Took this #trees #silhouette photo through the sunroof of Mom's car. By Blanshard St & Bay St intersection. Some trees along the traffic median.

Have you heard of forest bathing aka shinrin yoku? Trees have a lifeforce that you can feel, which is one of the reasons I make it a point to walk through the woods every day. I feel like today's tree is celebrating its life...

Exhausted. Tarot campaign finished successfully this week, sickness coursed through the house, I still made it outside to spend time with my trees. Tomorrow I go to a Welsh mountain cabin with no electricity. Essentially just a bed & a log fire. Yes please. Yes please. 💚

A single, leafless, winter tree with several thin trunks wandering up from frozen green ground. There is a bare field in the background, fog hides what’s in the distance.

I've been known to hug a few trees in my time. I honestly feel like trees have healing energy and at the very least can calm a person down when they're stressed. So I have a growing collection of tree artwork because working on tree art also feels like a healing thing to do.

Sunny background, with one of my favourite hugging trees, sitting in the centre of the picture. This aged Cedar has obviously been here for many years, standing proud. Over time, some large branches have been lost, however, this magnificent specimen remains firm in the ground, appearing proud.

Close up, you can see where a wood carved has created an artwork nest of wood & a bird.

My first post for #thicktrunktuesday, taken at Cedar Grove along the Crooked Fork of the Lochsa River. Not the biggest tree I’ve hugged, but still impressive. #trees #TreeHugger #Idaho

2016 honeymoon inSanta Cruz, California. Me and a coastal redwood tree in the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. I'm a literal #treehugger and couldn't wrap my arms around this thick trunk.
