Survivor Tree Unseen

Sometimes the full extent of a tree’s harsh environment can not be fully appreciated until after the tree’s death. Times of drought and fire scars are documented in the tree’s rings. Or how about this tree? When the wood was being burned, it became pretty clear the tree had encountered a fence in its younger days. There was a piece of barbed wire inside!

    What an amazing photo & what a coincidence that the person who got this chunk of wood to burn was you, someone who loves trees & wanted to share this as part of Festival of the Trees. It went beyond just you who saw it to many others around the world. It’s like we are all bearing witness to the pain & suffering of that tree. Photojournalism for trees.
