Earth Day 2015 & The Tree Who Lived

Earth-Day-2015

Today I learned…

A tree of ours is healing itself from the outside-in! The tree callus is visible now, where it wasn’t just a few months ago. I never knew trees had self-healing properties, did you?

I look forward to photo-documenting the tree as time marches on so the healing progress will be visible. Every “tree of distinction” near our house has been earning a name, and this one for our reference has been named Harry Potter – the tree with the scar. 🙂

The photograph to the left was taken December 2014, and healing is not yet visible. Click the photo to see it larger…

Now, compare that photo, to the one below, taken today (April 2015). It’s only been a few months, isn’t that amazing!

Trees are wonderful. Happy Earth Day from our tree(s) to yours!
