A contemporary of George Washington

bosnian beauty, bosnian tourism

 

Deep in the Bosnian forests this beech producing oxygen more then 300 years andΒ plays the role of home to many miniature inhabitants.

She developed a root system which is more complex than the most complicated subways in the world.

  1. I used to live in a town, Perinton, in upstate New York USA that was originally about 47% beech-maple forest and 43% Oak-Hickory. They were both beautiful, but the beech-maple forest was unchallenged in the beauty and diversity of the undergrowth, particularly wild flowers, This came about because of a symbiotic relationship between beech trees and many other organisms! Unfortunately, the area occupied by the beeches were the easiest to develop, first as farm land and later for housing, so very little of that forest remains today.

  2. Trees can be amazing. We have a banyan tree with many branches that go right into the ground. Thanks for following my blog. I am humbled and delighted.

  3. That same root system you’re referring to has helped many young trees around the area. That tree is the holy grail to the baby trees around it. πŸ™‚

  6. Hello, alisjusic! The framing of this photograph spotlights the organic relationship between tree and earth, with the roots taking on the appearance of fingers gripping the earth with millennial strength. The diagonal line makes me realize I’m looking at something beyond our human world, ancient and oblivious to our ephemeral time here. The quality of the light adds to the mystical mythic quality, as if the tree might even be aware. I believe J.R.R. Tolkien would have appreciated your view of this scene. Nice work.

  9. It’s always lovely to reflect on the waves of history which have washed over the earth while a tree has been rooted and, as you say, poured oxygen out into the air πŸ™‚
    We have lots of ancient Beech trees in Scotland, and often they have names and wishes of love carved into their bark.
