I love awesome strong tree trunks. They are quite remarkable. I relate to ‘tree huggers’ when I see one of these.
Me too, especially those that have stood for millennia.
Thank you for letting me know.
Let’s drink to the Melaleuca!

Yes the trees are the lungs of the earth and there is unnecessary tree culling happening that is why tree huggers are shouting this out for us.
I agree, without the trees Earth will die.
As a tree hugger from way,way back, I deeply appreciate both the photograph and the powerful poem that accompanies it. Thank you.
Thank you for taking the time to comment. While I have always been attracted to power and strength of trees, it is since passing mid-life that I have become more connected to them.
I first hugged trees when I was walking down the streets trying to get to the hospital in time to give birth to my daughter. At every pain, I grabbed a tree and hung on until it passed.They were my saviors that morning.
Wow, thank goodness the trees were there!
