Thin barren branches form a bizzare pattern standing out against the clear evening sky. In contrast with the complex pattern of the barren branches, there are rich foliage of the neigbouring young trees along the edges of the image. The plentiful and healthy leaves of the young trees seem rather predictable and mundane in their design.

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.

And the tree trunk, that trunk…twisting, gnarled wood…the swirl and story of ages and ages.
I lay my hands on it and breathe in…and then breathe out.

in the town nearest to me, they hate trees. last year they cut down two giant lychee trees. in another part of the parking lot (the town is mainly parking lot), they cut down a bunch of conifers, but left the cell phone tower disguised as a tree.

and now this. the tiny post office cut down this perfectly fine plumeria. what is the reason? what did the plumeria do to them?? drop leaves??

even the buddhist temple does it! they killed a huge monkeypod tree on their lawn.

Both #trees and undergrowth appear much more lush than last month. We're having a proper drought though* and nature is struggling. One to three yr old trees are simply dying (burning in the sun) and some older trees stopped developing flowers halfway.

Why #Ecologists Are Haunted by the Rapid Growth of #GhostForests

A study in North Carolina of dying #trees may represent a foreboding preview of what may come to #coastal #ecosystems worldwide.

by Jim Morrison

"As the ocean intrudes and saltwater rises, it kills trees and creates these ghost forests—bare trunks, and stumps, ashen tombstones marking a once-thriving coastal ecosystem. In North Carolina, #pine, #RedMaple, #sweetgum and bald #cypress forests are being replaced by saltmarsh. Eventually, that saltmarsh will be replaced by open water, a shift that leads to significant and complex costs to the environment and the local economy. The loss of forests will reduce carbon storage, further fueling climate change, and the agriculture industry, timber interests will suffer as saltwater moves inland."

A big old stag-headed oak tree in the fog.

It has a girth of around 8.5 metres, and has bags of character - it photographs well from lots of angles. It's also home to at least one barn owl - the first time I discovered that was when it flew right over my head in the twilight on a winter's morning.

Hope you had a great bank holiday weekend? ❤️ 🌳

An old gum tree in the desert outside Alice Springs, Central Australia.

Yep, the soil really is that colour thanks to the high iron content!

An old gum tree with a pronounced lean to the right, growing out of bright orangey-red, sandy soil. There's a range of sparse hills behind, and some low scrub and small trees dotted in the background

I took this about 18 years ago today. I love the way the light comes through the Cedars at this time of year. #Nature #Trees #Mulmur #Forest #ThickTrunkTuesday

The sunlight casts a gold glow on the trunks of the trees. A leafy dark green background.
