Tree Art

Earthporm has come up with some more wonderful photos where the 'natural' world overcomes the 'unnatural' world. Trees will find a way to survive - I have seen plenty of photos of trees barely hanging on, but somehow making it through.  I love these photos below, because of the shape of the roots following the tessellating patterns of the pavement.

Stunning - mother nature at its best.

According to Earthporm's web site, "An extremely large tree doesn’t only hog concrete–it can also hog water. A big tree can consume 100 gallons of water out of the ground a day. To justify this excessive water intake, the same tree supplies enough oxygen to support up to 4 people."

(If anyone could tell me how to post a link under a heading that would lead them to the page, I would be grateful - I try to insert the link, but there isn't the facility to post under a heading.  Thank you)
