The Old Dog Contributes: Tree Tuesday And The Scars And Lines of Age!

in treetuesday •  3 months ago

Some say that the wrinkles and scars on a man's face give him character. Is that just a nice way of saying that the man has grown old? Perhaps!

In the case of trees, though, the signs of their age certainly do add interest and beauty. 

The example that I'm showing here features the healed wound of a branch that has been lopped off as well as the remnants of the sappy tears that once ran down from the wound. 

Extending up from the wound is another curvy vertical scar that has healed as a testament to the power and resilience of this moss covered tree!

Here is My Submission For This Week's Tree Tuesday!


I found so much to look at on the trunk of this tree!

You’re too funny Rich!

That's what I look like when I squeeze my belly together!

Always great to see the Old Dog in the tag! That is a great old tree with a lot going on in the pic. I really like seeing the moss/lichen on the trees. I heard it say that is an indication of good air quality!

·

Thanks for the idea and for promoting and curating it so well! It's a great challenge for everyone to get involved in.

@kus-knee,
Time cure everything! Look at what you shared, it's a best example for that! I might try to find a tree which cured by time! Hope it will work! Nice contest!

Cheers~

·

Thanks. Tree Tuesday is every week.

@ kus-knee life passes and leaves nicks and grooves in us.

Hai fatto bene di fare una foto!

Grazie :-))) l' albero dovrebbe sempre esserci tra l' altro :-D

Of course, trees, like humans, are getting old. Old age is often not only wisdom but also beauty. If it have prestige! The trees have. That's what I get from your picture. About your invitation ... I like to post to @old-guy-photos's challenge. Now I'm a little late, but I will succeed.

·

Your right! I look forward to your entry!

·
·

Thank you! Just now I managed to post.

Dear friend, the word of God says: everything that breathes praises Jehovah, and I am sure that this tree as a living being, I weep the cut of its branch, and for the sample it is there with that wounded gra and a big hole in it. his heart, but still, his moss does not leave him, I know that he will not heal, nor will he ever do the same as before, but the best thing of all is that he still, wounded, continues to breathe. Beautiful photo.

·

Yes you are right it does say that! Animate and inanimate things praise!

Wonder natural photgraphy. The old hit of the tree. It is now very beautiful. it is a nice image with a good color
happy and blessed day friend.

If you do a little research, when I was in gradschool (early 70s) in Kaneville, IL a large limb broke off a in a storm revealing a cannon . I believe it is on display there now.

Nice shot/click
Keep it up

·

Perhaps you should write about it.

Oldest trees increase our nature beauty. They have various awesomeness. Your captures always talented @kus-knee.

·

Thanks!

To think some of these trees are thousands of years old is just spectacular. That particular one looks more than 1000 years old (am no expert)

·

I don't know the age either!

I think this is a spectacular tree!
Beautiful pettern/shape

This tree is on all the computers we have at work. I wondered what tree it was, but felt it would be impossible to find that exact tree. Well, to make a long story short, I actually stumbled upon a few pictures and tracked down the tree. Thanks for posting this! My life is complete.

However, i'm really impressed after see this tree
Well done dear friend @kus-knee
Have a good day thank you

It's so true!

Hi old dog, Oldest trees showing their proud to the nearest environment. Without tress how will we find our main live effect of Oxygen. So main assets need to protect from tree hunters.

·

Yes we need the trees!

Nature is expert in making these type of beautiful arts.

·

Yes, all the credit goes to the creator!

Oh wow @kus-knee this is a wonderful find! I am intruigued by tree scars like this. I photographed one here in the jungle just recently but couldn’t figure out what had caused it to be the way it was. I guess I should study then phenomina more to understand what I am looking at. Your photo is rather epic I have to say, there is just so much going on in it!!

·

Wow, thanks for the compliment and glad that you're having fun scar hunting too!

Like a Sequoia Tree I want to live for centuries @kus-knee but free from the harsh realities of live but showing the grandeur of how it is to live in a problem free world.

·

I’m sure that you do. That’s a wonderful hope!

they have seen all the up and downs through their age the scars tells a lot of stories .... great shots for the tree Tuesday :)

·

Thanks!

Muy buena fotografia @kus-knee y si las cicatrices de los arboles demuestran todo el daño que le hace el hombre a la naturaleza
