This tree is estimated to be older than Ted Kennedy, even older than Colonial America. Wikipedia has the whole story. The branches on this baby are bigger around than most trees I see around here!

Can you see the naked screaming crucified man in this photo?
Trilby Wednesday Jun 17 08:44 AM
Yeah, I see him. Scary!
ZenGum Wednesday Jun 17 08:47 AM
Hi wombat! I lived in Canberra for a few years, and I've been hiking in Namadgi a fair bit. That's a pretty weird tree photo you've got there.
Wombat Wednesday Jun 17 08:59 AM
Hi ZenGum, Yes I've been there but only in the day not at dusk. I'll keep an eye out next time I'm there.

It looks like the tree man is enjoying it.

The Major Oak in Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, according to legend Robin Hood and his merry men used to hide out in it's hollow trunk. Though that couldn't have been this tree as it's not old enough, or would have justa sapling. Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story, and tourism though

A tree with a walker? Who wood have thought it? Knot me. Must be a new branch of medicine.

You leaf me speechless shel.

That Robin Hood story rubs against the grain. Is there a splinter of truth in there anywhere? Anyone who believes it without checking first is a sap.

Oh crumbs. How about this:
DanaC Wednesday Jun 17 04:07 PM
Oh how marvellous. What a perfect pic-i-nic spot.
Queen of the Ryche Wednesday Jun 17 04:19 PM
It's in downtown Santa Barbara, CA. They actually diverted the freeway around it.

This is a giant Banyan tree in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii. I saw it when I was on vacation. It is amazing, but, hard to capture in a picture.
DanaC Wednesday Jun 17 05:23 PM
Wow. Just wow malone.
Gravdigr Wednesday Jun 17 05:42 PM
4fingermalone, That sounds like a sexual act. "Hey, baby. What do you want to do tonight?" "Why don't you give me a 4fingermalone?"
classicman Wednesday Jun 17 06:07 PM
I saw that tree as well while there - it is truly majestic.

There's a house in town I've always called Spooky House, that I've always loved. It looks like the cover of a kid's ghost story book. There is a knobby tree in front of it, a large and strange thing, and once when the house was for sale I got the fact sheet and whoever bought it had to agree to keep the tree. I'll have to try to remember to take a picture of it sometime.

We have trees locally here called 'Moreton Bay Figs' which grow outwards like the ones above.
DanaC Wednesday Jun 17 11:41 PM
That looks like something out of a fantasy movie
Aliantha Thursday Jun 18 12:58 AM
Some of them are pretty spectacular that's for sure.
ZenGum Thursday Jun 18 07:52 AM
There are Moreton Bay figs in Adelaide's parklands and even around the cricket ground, at the back of the stand, providing shade for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of cricket watchers. I hope some are still there, there has been a fair bit of development.

That would make the best treehouse!!!

Nope, I don't see it. I don't even see her breasts hanging toward her head from being upside down.

Damn, MoS, you need to get some. just some nice old fashioned consensual adult fun.

When I was looking for a pic to share I did notice that there were a number of pics of them from the US. They're a pretty hardy tree, and not really very particular about soil type or anything. They pretty much grow like weeds where ever they take root.

This thread needs a proper date amended.
spudcon Saturday Jun 20 08:13 AM
It started with an oak, not a date.
ZenGum Saturday Jun 20 08:15 AM
Nonsense; it started with an acorn.

Just noticed a flaw in the original pic. Mods have already fixed the first one.
