Suzi in Oregon on November 12, 2012

Wow, the stories this tree could tell, Nick dear. A shame it couldn't hold on for a few more centuries. This is a wonderful Autumn series - well done! Happy hugs (O:

Suzi in Oregon ~ I agree dearest LTM the history kept within its rings must be wildly impressive and such a gnarled truck too, maybe it does last for many more centuries in this truncated form ~ I'm so pleased that you have enjoyed my new Autumn series taken over this past weekend ~ Humungous Hugs ~GW

Good photo. Sad to see but I can imagine what a wonderful dining room table a slice of the trunk would make. Regards Derek

Derek Geer ~ Thanks Derek ~ Way back in the late seventies I used to carve the odd coffee table straight out from the trunk of dead Elms with a chain saw ~ always a risky thing to do, but of course I wore protective gear ~ A bloke the other side of the forest I lived by at that time, cut his throat with a chain saw as it kicked back and that was that! ~ All the best ~ nick
