Nature's Oddities
« on: January 02, 2012, 07:59:56 PM »
Here are a few of nature's oddities that I saw this past week.
 

 
A holey Sweetgum tree.
 

 
A holey White Oak.
 

 
A burl on an Ironwood (Blue Beech) that is sprouting.
 

 
A White Oak that separated and then grew back together further up.
 

 
This White Oak is in the process of limb grafting.

Cool pictures, it's great to see what nature can do.

Two sycamore's grown together, been thinking if they could be slabbed together would make a nice conference table, but they are so wide i dont think there is any way to cut them.

No picture here, but have seen whole areas of them, black spruce with layering. You have the parent tree in the middle and in a circle around it where the lower limbs touch the ground are new rooted trees growing. ;D

Here's a wooly black spruce.  Has a fur coat. ;)

Move'n on.
