This is a tree in my backyard that I call my “Charlie Brown” tree. When I moved in 8 years ago, I had to remove a wire that the previous owners had placed to support it. They must have been concentrating on other things and the wire became imbedded in its trunk. With the aid of a local tree service and some extra vigilance, we have been able to help it keep growing. I thought a portrait of her might be a good way to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!
Plainview has just written about being a tree hugger here. I think that is a great thing to be!
Al at Artist Exit O Riverblog has written a wonderful post about an old Cottonwood tree here.
