I am a tree, a tall tall tree..



... there are so many things that I can see
Save the trees, save the earth
We are the guardians of nature's birth.. from a poem by Laleta Davis-Mattis

Who doesn't loved trees.. we saw these beauties when we were in Kalamunda on Monday. I can't 100% swear to it but I'm pretty sure from their smooth pink bark they are Eucalyptus_salmonophloia aka salmon gums, they grow as high as 30metres. I think on 'love a tree day', May 16th, we should all go out and hug a tree and post a shot to prove it, I'm definitely going to, I don't hug trees nearly often enough :) who's with me! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. the lady walking under the trees in the above shot will give you an idea of the height, incroyable oui! p.p.s. hopefully back to normal size script tomorrow :)

  2. They certainly are impressive- and the texture of the trunk's different, of course, than anything I'm used to.

  4. They are beautiful. And although in some places "tree huggers" is a put-down, I'm all for tree-hugging, and tree-preserving!

  13. Gorgeous trees! I love that you included a human in the shot to provide perspective. Those are some TALL trees. I'm on board to hug a tree on May 16th (although, I may need a reminder…) : )

  15. Very nice straight trees. I wish my father was still around as he would have been able calculate how many houses he could build from the trees. He loved the smell of chainsaw fuel in the mornings.

  16. It makes Americans think of the giant redwoods in California.

    If it weren't for trees we'd all need bottled oxygen.

  20. First time I've seen those kind of trees. If you like trees, and you ever venture to California, you'll love the Giant Redwoods.

  22. I'm a tree hugger, too--and that's definitely a tall tree!

  23. Wow, that sure is tall, Grace! I took a note in my calendar. Yes, trees are important, there was a Simpsons episode on this (Lisa suggested the fishermen should stop fishing and then... they cut off all the trees - not what Lisa wanted to happen!).

  28. I have never seen this variety of eucalypt before. The pink tone is extraordinary. I don't hug a tree enough either, but always love trees.
