I really like trees. Here where I live, in California, there are the Sequoias, the tallest and most massive living things on earth. It is really a sight to behold. Whenever possible, I suggest that you see these things in person, rather than mere photos, to really appreciate the shear grandeur of it.
Also in trees are the oldest things on earth. The Bristlecone Pines here in California and the south-west U.S. live over 4500 yrs. That is incredible. But I just recently learned that a pine tree in Sweden is over 9500 yrs. old. Wow. The thing about that tree is that the tree portion only lives about 6oo yrs. But the roots regenerate a new tree when that one dies. Also, there are some really old pine trees in Tasmania.
Around my area the Oak trees are hundreds of years old. I like to look at the those trees and try to imagine all the things that have passed before it in its life. Fast forward 600 hundred years of days and nights as the tree slowly grows and branches out. All the wind and rain and animals and people that have passed by in the 600 years until bam! here and now, the tree and me.
Trees have been really successful in life. They have lots to say and that is one of the reasons that I really like them.
