    On that theme...many years ago when the owner of a local nursery was clearing land, he stuck some of the trees upside down & used the exposed root balls for "hanging baskets." They've since become a bit of an attraction. (photos not mine). Happy day.

    Bigfoot likes to push trees into the ground upside down.
    Cable television told me so.

    Baobab trees in WA....

    "It features in rock art and also dreamtime stories, where it was regarded as being too proud and arrogant and was punished by being re-planted upside-down with its roots in the air. Interestingly, the African Baobab is also known as the “upside-down tree”. This nick-name stems from an Arabic legend which claims that a devil uprooted a tree and planted it upside down."

    Thats a very nice photo, those trees are super unique. I can not look at a tree like that and not wonder how it would look and sound as a guitar. I do put nature over tone wood although.
