Thursday Tree Love: Tall Pine


“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” John Muir

I must really have a thing for trunks and bark. This tall pine is another one of my new friends who lives near the Linville River in the Appalachian Mountains.

It seems to be looking down at me with curiosity, but that’s just a guess.

  1. Interesting thoughts JoAnna.. What must the tree feel when we click its photos from all angles.. what must we look like to it? As you say, surely it must be curious about us!! Jokes apart, this is a wonderful tree. Is it a Ponderosa Pine?

    • I’m so glad you appreciate these photos and wonder with me what the tree must feel. I don’t think it’s a Ponderosa pine. I just did some quick research as to what kinds of pines might be in my area. It might be a Virginia pine, a white eastern pine, or a pitch pine. Thanks for getting me to take a closer look.

  2. Great photos, JoAnna. I think it welcomes you.

  3. I, too, have a fascination for the bark of tree trunks. They are well weathered with time, but still stand firm and strong. They are also home to all kinds of insects and birds. Trees like your tall pine friend have so much to teach us human beings, busy running around and chasing futilities.

  4. Again–stunning. And yes, in the final image, the tree seems very curious about you, walking/talking tree. πŸ˜‰

  5. What a stunning one! That last one gave me goosebumps. So cool and I loved that you picked this one to share.
    Thank you! I hope to see you around tomorrow too, JoAnna. You bring such lovely trees from your side of the world. So grateful!
