The Gloucester Tree is a giant karri tree in the Gloucester National Park of Western Australia. At 61 metres (201 feet) in height, it is the world’s tallest fire-lookout tree, and visitors can climb up to a platform in its upper branches for a spectacular view of the surrounding karri forest

Australian tree species are unique in their ability to recover from severe busfires like the current event in the State of Victoria. Some will never come back but others will rejuvenate & live to see the next big fire.

PehuĂ©n or Monkey-puzzle is the hardiest species in the conifer genus. It is native to central Chile and west central Argentina, and is an evergreen tree growing to 40 m tall and 2 m trunk diameter. Because of the species’ great age it is sometimes described as a living fossil. Araucaria araucana is the national tree of Chile. Source Wikipedia.

WOW, Thanks Grumpy and Dan, and others, for the best blog ever. Moving and funny, very cool. If I could work the computer better I’d add a couple, but no need really, think you guys covered it pretty well. Great idea!

The Devil’s Tree is a solitary oak, with some dead limbs, growing in an undeveloped field on Mountain Road in the Martinsville section of Bernards Township, New Jersey. It is just opposite Emerald Valley Lane, a recently-constructed subdivision.
Local legend, extensively documented in Weird NJ magazine and the book based on it, has it that the tree is cursed, or the property of the Devil. Allegedly, those who damage or show disrespect to the tree (usually by urinating on it, or making disparaging remarks about it within earshot) will soon thereafter come to some sort of harm, often in the form of a car accident or major breakdown as they leave. [1] Others report being chased after nighttime visits by black phantom vehicles that disappear before reaching a major road. [1] Simply touching the tree is said to cause unexplained effects, such as the hand turning black afterwards. [1]
In winter, the ground beneath the tree is supposedly free from snow, no matter how much has fallen or how recently. [1] A nearby boulder called “Heat Rock” is said to be warm to the touch regardless of the season or time of day, and is believed to be a portal to Hell. [1]
It’s said that rebellious slaves were hanged from the tree in colonial times, or that the Ku Klux Klan used it for lynchings; local legend attributes these murderous acts to the tree itself. [2] The hangings are said to have used the branch that runs almost parallel to the ground. [2]
Despite the dire warnings of the legends, the tree has been damaged to the point that its lower trunk is protected by a covering of chain-link fence around it; there is graffiti above the top of the fencing. Furthermore, the site is now constantly patrolled and nearby homeowners consider the tree an extreme nuisance.[citation needed] The township’s plans to develop the land might’ve required the tree’s removal, but it was decided to protect the tree and keep it as-is. Since early 2007, there is a sign stating when it’s open to the public.

Possibly because the photo has been moved or deleted from it’s original location & the link has been lost.
