Took this photo today on the way to work.
Yes, but we need more Walmarts.
Ancient. It's seen a lot.
I spent some time on that Campus many moons ago...We created our own disc golf course using those green light poles and wham o frisbees...30 years ago. I know exactly where that tree is.
Amazing how much everywhere looks the same. That pic could have been taken west of Blackwell's Corner on the way to the coast.
I am very familiar with that particular oak; to say it is magnificent would be an understatement.
Between the many stately centuries old oaks & the enormous cypress trees in Louisiana, the place is certainly a tree hugger's paradise, beside being a sportsman's paradise.
Speaking of trees, I LOVE the Far Side comic where a father and son cut down a huge, old tree. While pointing at the tree rings, the dad says to the son; "And see this ring right here, Jimmy? That's another time when the old fella miraculousy survived some big forest fire."
That's about when I was a student. Frisbee golf seems to be making a comeback these days...
I was assuming (hoping) Marc Morfei was being sarcastic about the need for more walmarts.
It is said that before the blight , a squirrel could climb into a Chestnut tree in Georgia and not touch the ground until Maine simply by hoping from one Chestnut tree to another .
Some of them just have a presence all their own.
This is a close up of a Redwood where I MTB called Methuselah. She's about 2000 years old, one of the oldest trees in NorCal. 14 feet in diameter and about 44 feet around.
This is a beautiful photo. Hope you don't mind that I am using it as my desktop background!
Savannah , Georgia trees .
I have a 200 (or so) year old pecan tree on my property. I have been told by locals that Confederate soldiers would take rest breaks under the shade it provided. (currently raining too hard or I would go out and snap a pic)
I live in the southern reach of the Great Plains. 200 years ago there were no trees. There was nothing except grass...a virtual sea of it.
Immediately behind my house is a Smokehouse Apple tree that was propagated via a scion from the old tree that once stood here . Fortunately , I had the foresight to have this done before the demise of the original . That old tree was my Grandfather's pride and joy and is , in my opinion , possibly the best example of the Smokehouse variety to be found .
This looks just like our property looked like in Paulden Arizona which is 1.5 miles north of Phoenix. We had 6 acres and 5 scraggly looking trees on it but great mountain views just like your pic. I now live in NW South Carlina on 6 acres and I now have hundreds of trees on my property.
