Today’s forest

August 23rd, 2010


  1. John in MI says:

    Very cool!

  2. Candice in Alabama says:

    I’m OLDER than that forest!

  3. katzien in austin says:

    Very nice. I’m not that patient with the trees I plant. I want then big and tall…tomorrow.

  4. Gigi says:

    Just past the half-century mark and standing tall and proud. Great shot of the trees!

  5. Don in Tennessee says:

    OK – I was born in 1950. How come these trees are taller than me and I am 8 years older? I think I know the answer. I am a twin and 13 minutes younger than my brother. When he got finsihed there was nothing left for me and I am still starving. I truly am a twin. (In unison – OH NO, NOT ANOTHER ONE! We really are not very much alike!

    Seriously, I hate to see forest fires because it also affects wildlife, its habitat, and food sources. But nature has a way of healing the wounds and coming back, albeit slowly as this attests.

      Well Don I’m glad you said it first as I was thinking it- “Oh no! You mean there are 2 of them?!” LOL. love you Don.

    I really enjoy the signs letting people know when the trees were planted. They do that a lot around here…especially in the forests they harvest. They pull out the trees, then plant new ones and date them so they know when it’s time to pull them again.

  7. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    I like this it’s so neat to see what someone else planted so long ago. It just shows how long it takes for something like a tree to grow up big and strong. I bet to when they put the sign up they were so proud of it to.

  8. Yipes, they were busy planting trees in 1958 and I was a young 18 year old getting married! No one do the math, please!

  9. katzien in austin says:

    Oh my! I did the math, yes I did. What’s great about you, aside from all your worldly stories, is that you’re online and emailing and blogging, etc! Many of my family members, parents, aunts/uncles, grandparents, just do not want to be bothered with learning new technology or keeping up with the world. They shrug it off as an irritation, something that is dissapproved of and thought ridiculous. They are being left behind I fear.

    • Candice In Alabama says:

      That is so right, katzien – kudos to Karin for embracing technology as well as life!

      I’m trying to get my 85 year old Mom interested! You should see her trying to use a mouse to move the cursor!
