{Our Tree Hugger}

Sometimes one can laugh when walking through the garden... We can observe funny things in nature. Our Live Oak or Quercus Virginiana has been hugging itself from the beginning on. A true TREE HUGGER!
Funny sight isn't it?
You can see the tree here below in a previous post:

    Oh, never have I seen anything like this, either. Wow, Hugging itself from the beginning on; the true TREE HUGGER warms our heart, just wishing that no harm for the tree.

      We have never seen it before either; very special and warm in a way. The root loop will grow along with the rest of the tree trunk; no harm or whatsoever!

  17. Ken het ook niet, is dat zo gegroeid? Verstikt de boom zich niet door deze tak? Ken het nederlandse woord niet. Schijnt wel bijzonder te zijn hè?

    1. Beste Janny,
      Nee hoor, deze boomwortel verstikt de boomstam echt niet. Het is geen tak hoor; die zitten boven. En die boomwortel groeit net zo hard als de stam dus ze gaan mooi samen op; innig omhelzend.

  19. Hello Mariette, I have spent lots of time in the woods studying trees, and your unusual live-oak is definitely a first. It's lucky it grew in a yard where it was destined to be appreciated.

  28. Lieve Mariette,

    Een speling van de natuur...
    als deze boom in containerpot opgekweekt is voordat hij in de volle grond gezet werd kan het zijn dat een wortel is gaan rondgroeien om zijn stam,goed mogelijk wanneer de stam nog verder blootgelegd wordt dat er nog meer van die ''knuffelwortels'' zitten rond de stam.
    Grappig en bijzonder om te zien,dat wel!!
    Mariette jij bent in deze dagen in mijn gedachte en ik wens je veel goeds!!!!
    Dikke knuffel van ons en lieve groet!!!
    Ger
