Recommended Posts

yeah i bet. I have always found trees like this remarcable ones that don't have any great height but must have a long history and even though they have been beaten down they still show signs of life.

I think David Humphries has a bit of a collection of Phoenix trees tucked away somewhere.

Would be nice to see some from Mr Humphries.

I'm planning on making more of an effort to take pictures of these trees when i pass them.

The Ely Plane tree.

 

I used to sneak in to this garden, when it used to be an old peoples home, as a teenager and drink cans of fosters with mates while watching the ducks. It usually took the grounds men a few hours to find me before I was asked to move on. Now it's owned by a school that my eldest daughter goes to. So I took the excuse of an Easter egg hunt to sneak back in and have a look. It's only 100 m from my mothers house so I see the canopy all the time, but standing at the base of this tree is something else!!

A great tree indeed Will, have snuck in a couple of times myself in the past to revel in the sheer majesty of what's a beast of a tree.

 

Few other shots of it on this previous thread (post 5)
