LIFE AND DEATH OF A BEAUTIFUL TREE


I took this photo at my neighborhood, in July 2005. This beautiful tree was at this time vigorous and healthy. As a result of some root disease, the tree beginning to die.



Yesterday we had a day of violent gale and storm.



Unfortunately that tree was too weak and fell down after a day of very heavy winds and rains.

  14. Lovely story, or shall I say tribute to a beautiful tree. I also wrote about a tree in my blog today - very different from yours though.

  15. Very sad to read about your beautiful tree. Some winds are so strong, they topple even the the things that look invincible. Your skies look much like ours lately. A lot of wind and rain.

  18. Tous ces arbres sont très très beaux !
    Quelle puissance , quelle beauté !

    Mais , ne comprenant pas bien l'anglais ...est ce une tempète qui les a fait tomber ?

  19. Wow! These are awesome photos -- really capture the ominous quality of the storm!

  21. Assim, morta pela própria natureza é triste e tolerável, dentro da normalidade do ser vivo que um dia morre.
    Agora, o que acontece na cidade de São Paulo, é um crime, que acompanho diáriamente. A própria Prefeitura é sempre a primeira a cortar as árvores.

  22. Trees give definition to a place. I remember when a tornado hit Charleston, SC several years ago and destroyed all the old oaks in the center of the town - the whole city mourned the loss.

    But, Sonia ... you live in an awesomely lovely place - beautiful photos!

  23. Oh Sonia, I hate that happened. That poor tree! Oh mother nature can seem so cruel sometimes but I imagine she has her reasons.

  24. How beautiful and sad!

    You are just in time - today is the deadline - to submit this to the blog festival of the trees, if you feel like doing so: http://festivalofthetrees.wordpress.com/

  26. Oi,Sonia!

    QUANDO vejo um desastre desse..fico muito triste...é o protesto da natureza...e os homens não percebem isso...
    Cd árvore que caí...sangra meu coração,pois sou a maior defensora das árvores , quando deparo com pessoas que sangram as lindas árvores do meu bairro...fico arrasada...

  27. Oh that's a shame about the lovely tree. I hope the storm didn't cause any damage to your property Sonia.
    I'll be renting "The Straight Story" thanks to your write up about it. Sounds great.
