Whilst looking at trees that persist with just strips of sapwood, I thought I’d share these photos of a hornbeam within the same country park as the oak tree mentioned in my previous post. This tree was different to all the others, as it quite literally is half a tree!

My wife would exhibit exactly the same degree of interest as your girlfriend. How can they not be interested and excited?

They’ve probably just never looked at a tree as a living being with complex systems in place to respond to stimuli in the most effective and efficient way possible. I suppose it wasn’t until I started really understanding trees that I could look at a tree and just go “wow”. Nonetheless, how anyone can not find this cool is beyond me!
