The trees will always win in the end, so do not worry.
The rooftops of Katmandu, Nepal. “One generation plants the trees; another gets the shade”. An Elm tree.
Scots Pine tree growing through a house in West Berlin. Root system is protected - shows it can be done. Thank you Herr Professor.
The Selbourne Yew tree. This photo was taken just before it blew over during the 1987 October storm. In hind site, if it had been butchered before the storm hit, it would still be alive - maybe a lesson for the learned ones amongst us, or maybe not.
Sawmill with altitude. On the road to Darjeeling, Indian Himalaya, 1987.
All too often, trees are pruned to stop people climbing... what a shame. This tree was ruined the next day under the protection of UNESCO - all in the name of historical accuracy Maybe the Kaiser would have liked this tree, or maybe not. Park Sanssouci, Potsdam, Germany.
We manage all sorts of hedges. A fine one in Rajasthan, India.
Waiting for the back cut. Kashmir, 1986...
The Old Straight Track.
A very old fellow. I bet his breath smells of bats! An English Oak. Beckles, Suffolk.
Who is who? Beech.
Serious bats in your tree! Kerrala, South India
Ficus religiosa, the Peepul or Bodhi tree, Fort Kochi, South India. Sit under one of these for enlightenment. Not sure how long it takes.
The Farringdon Yew trees. They are in the churchyard and are definitely worth a visit.
