Trees !

Woodman,spare that tree!
Touch not a single bough!
In youth it sheltered me,
And I'll protect it now.
George P. Morris

  Every tree has a story. If you look at any of these pics I am sure you could put a caption under it. I will give it a try.
Standing in a crowd
  There is something magical about any tree.
      The older ones have strength and character.
      The dead ones so much beauty.
      If they could talk the stories they could tell.

My family strong and proud

I have always been fascinated with trees.
    As a child I would climb and fall out of the tallest tree on a dare.
  Sometimes I got up there and had to get my Mom or Brother to come get me down.
  The view was incredible.

Later in life they would be the subject for photography classes.
   Always a different way to look at them.
   There are a lot of ways to see a tree.

Woodpeckers like me
 Now as an adult and farmer. I enjoy the true gift  and beauty.
  The warmth they provide us in winter.(we only cut dead ones)
  The shade they provide.
  The sap to make Maple syrup. The nuts to eat.
  The fruit they bear.
  And the most important to me , Their  unforgettable  beauty.
  I do love a tree.
Beauty in disease

  A true gift of nature. Enjoy.
