Wordless Wednesday: Well, Almost Wordless….

The Hollow Tree in Stanley Park, Vancouver, British Columbia 2001

  I know Wordless Wednesday is supposed to be just that, wordless, but after adding these pictures I went to look up the name of the park where we visited this huge, amazing tree known as the Hollow Tree, and I came across an interesting , yet disappointing update that I want to share…

Inside The Hollow Tree

   Unfortunately, in 2006, major wind storms tore through Stanley Park and further ruined the tree’s already weakened support system.  It was listing at an 11 degree angle when the park deemed it unsafe and it was marked for removal.  The Hollow Tree quickly became the focus of a conservation society fund raiser, and in 2009 the tree was righted and braced.  Although this historical landmark has been ‘saved’, it does not look the same…
   For more information, including pictures from after the storm and since the bracing, visit http://www.savethehollowtree.com/id17.html

Nature sure is amazing. I can't even imagine all the weather and changes this old tree has seen.
