Thursday Tree Love: Playground Tree


I’m not sure what kind of tree this is, though it might be a cedar. My granddaughter and I found it at a park near a playground.

It turned out to be a great place to climb, play, and enjoy the shade.

  1. It’s awesome you’re sharing nature’s beauty together!

  2. Love this tree, especially the way it has branched!

  3. We had a huge cedar in our front yard when we lived in Florida. I just love grand old trees! That’s a great photo of you — your granddaughter has a good eye.

  4. My younger son loved climbing trees when he was a boy. He would love climbing this one 🙂

  5. Wonderful image of you JoAnna and its good to see you are teaching your granddaughter your own love of Trees..
    Nothing like being among their energy.. or that of grandchildren Lol..
    Love and Blessings ❤

  6. Looks like you’re enjoying climbing around in there.

  7. Ha ha! Look at you 🙂 I love the forking of the branches here.

  8. A very nice photo of you in the tree. And speaking of trees, without them, mankind would not have fared so well. We owe so much to trees and dare I say that our lives depend on then for survival.

    • Thank you, Yvonne. I’m glad you like the photo and appreciate your insight. I agree that we depend on trees for oxygen and they use our CO2. It’s a perfect design that we humans need to respect and protect. The shade they provide is nice, too.

  9. wonderful seeing kids
    playing in trees 🙂

  10. Gorgeous tree photos! Lucky ladies, what a fun, memorable day for both of you!

  11. So beautiful and lovely!

  12. Whatever its name, its beautiful! The multiple branches give it a unique character… But knowing its name would make it all the more enjoyable!

  13. I loved the last picture the most. You look happy and that it was a good day with your little granddaughter. 🙂 Thanks JoAnna for joining. I am so glad you did. I hope to see you around tomorrow.

  14. WOw ! Tree climbing granny. I must say that is rather brave of you. My grandchildren sometimes dare me to climb trees with them but I prefer to let them do it while I watch

  15. beautiful tree and glad you enjoyed the time with your granddaughter.
    the tree is huge and really provides great shade and climbing place for kids.
