The locals have been trimming this one for awhile, I'd reckon ...

Cheers,

Here's a nice Sequoia to add to this topic. I also like the message on the back that refers to a historic activity, now long past: the nightly Yosemite Firefall.

Here's a "used-to-be" tree. Although the card says it's from Bellingham, the stump house was actually in Edgecomb, WA. It was cut apart in the early '20s to be moved and reassembled, but that part never came to be.

California Redwood Tree "Wowona" Mariposa's Grove, California. The Wawona Tree, also known as the Wawona Tunnel Tree, was a famous giant sequoia that stood in Mariposa Grove, Yosemite National Park, California. It had a height of 227 feet (69 m) and was 26 feet (7.9 m) in diameter at the base. This tree fell over in 1969 I think. This postcard is hot right now because a lot of people think it's the big sequoia that fell a couple weeks ago. This is a different tunnel tree. There are a few of them.

A walk among redwoods, a used postcard from Willits I recently picked up. There is someone standing in the middle of the card.

I discovered a few more well-known trees in various corners of my album!

The Suicide Oak is famous in New Orleans as a place where 16 men hung their nooses -- at least that's the legend. It still stands in City Park and was growing more than a century before the city was founded.



Here's the largest cherry tree in Oregon, circa 1912. And look at that nicely paved road!



The Ostrich Tree (two Monterey Cypress, actually) stood on a bluff near Monterey, CA until it was blown down in 1916. If you squint your eyes you can see the "ostrich" striding to the right.

What looks, at first, like one lovely tree in front of Les Berges du Leman, which googles-up as an assisted living (and very assisted living) joint in Vevey CH:



A more recent photograph shows that the building's rounded whazdatcalled has been glassed-in, and the tree ripped out:



The trees were very close to the building ... perhaps the roots were causing trouble?
