Enjoying Veteran Trees

Have been enjoying pictures and stories of some veteran trees, relics of trees, monuments of trees. Many of which have man's hand in it, at some point in history. History, culture, nature alltogether. We so need nature to be our god again.

Wherever I could, I put a bit of text beside the pictures.
