Thursday Tree Love: Growing Out of Rock


This tree, or maybe it’s two trees, lives in the mountains of North Carolina and appears to be growing out of rock.

Here’s the view from the other direction.

A full crown of leaves suggests deep roots finding nourishment in spite of the rock base.

Can you identify this tree couple? I’m thinking maybe beech.

  1. How interesting, JoAnna. I saw a split tree like this growing near the edge of the pond in our park. I think the bank must have collapsed and it has taken root in the water. Nature is amazing.

  2. Happy Thursday, JoAnna! Love the metaphor here.

  3. Unsure of the tree type, but your pics are so cool! Amazing is right!

  4. Interesting! Thanks for sharing.

  5. The perfect example of “grow where you are planted”. I’m not good enough with tree ID to know what those trees are, though.

  6. Inspiring …May we all be as strong as the little tree.

  7. Fascinating tree(s). Don’t think it’s beech as the bark is too rough, but I can’t make out the leaves for a clear identification.

  8. I’m no expert but the leaves do suggest beech

  9. I love the fall colour. Tall and amazing.

  10. This is so beautiful! Survival of the fittest! I always try to find the ID of trees I see, but over time I have come to accept that its ok not to know the name once in a while.. I just enjoy it for what I see!

  11. Great captures JoAnna! Nature never ceases to amaze!

  12. It’s beautiful. I recently spotted a tree on a wall and one of the Thursday Tree Loves, I will share it. I love that trees are such a great example of resiliency.
    Thanks for joining JoAnna and I hope to see you around tomorrow.
