Well Jocks, I thought these pictures were worth sharing. I don’t know the original source or even if they are genuine. Many of you may have already seen the pictures in a power point presentation. If anybody knows the source, or where the tree is located (if it is real) I would like to know.
(finally got there Tom).

No problem Tom. I will sneak my chainsaw through customs & head off down to Florida. How far do you think I would get?.

Thanks for the link Gizmo. I think I will leave the chainsaw at home. After all it is the tree of live.

WDW is right, been there in person, it’s a must see, there’s an actual show/theater underneath it.
