Practically miraculous to have that tree survive all this time! How wonderful that you share the neighborhood with it and recognize who it is and all it has seen and known. I wish we could talk to trees. Since we can't, I spend time under their canopies (one big, old, narrow-leaf cottonwood, especially) and soak in their presence and wisdom. What a gift to have that beautiful giant in your life. Thanks for sharing!


What a magnificent tree. It saddens me to think of all the old growth forest we're losing in this country, both to the timber industry and to environmental changes. How lucky you are still have this old sentinel nearby. Give him a pat once in a while and wish him well.

P.S. Do you have an estimate on size -- how big around and tall?

Kathy Kaiser

Pattie, it's wonderful that you have a relationship with a big cottonwood. I think we can communicate with trees, but it's subtle for sure. I often feel like I'm absorbing their peace.
I don't know the size of "my" pine. I'm not good at estimating height, although I could measure the diameter of the tree. I'll try that.

Kathy Kaiser

Susan, I am very lucky to have that tree. I'll say hi from you.
