Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)
The tree looks strange...
This one is magnificent Lois, wonderful shot!Léia :)
The local power company cuts our trees in such a manner. Most of them die shortly there after.
strange shape, but it looks like it gives good shade.
Poor tree! I expect you are right, but sometimes the utility crews here cut trees back away from the poles. It would be nice to live in a neighborhood with underground utilities.
That brings new meaning to "lean to the left" or "lean to the right!"
I really don't like to see trees cut back like this. Apparently they don't have or hire arborists down there. It might be something to bring up at the next council meeting. Our biggest complaint around here is the way the utilities dead head trees growing up to meet power lines. We have a lot of breaking limbs in ice storms and those bring down power lines. So we can't really complain unless we can fund a better solution. Around here it is not to plant them in those locations but if they are already there then someone should know about trees and how to trim them to redirect their growth.
I like old trees. This one looks like it's been blown by the wind.
shame, it looked to be a huge one!
Although it does have a strange shape now, I'm glad it was saved!
That's pretty much a mess. It could be, though, that a wind brought down the other half...I've seen a number of trees where that happened...So, it's possible that some good guys stepped in and saved this tree from being totally destroyed...maybe?
It looks as though it's leaning away from the road.
Can not say that I am a great fan of lopping trees for this sort of reason, Lois. They do that a lot here to avoid power lines. They simply cut a hole straight through the canopy. Can't be good for the poor tree!
Glad they saved it!
I'd like to think that lovely tree was bent by the wind rather than cut for a road.
The tree looks like it is waving good-bye. MB
Aw, it looks like it's bent over from a great burden. I am SO impressed that the trees are not chopped down in T. I am still fuming over the pine trees just outside our front door that the association cut down, because the roots were maybe going to crack the CEMENT on the TENNIS COURT! Agh!Lovely, flinty photo too.
I think it looks gorgeous. I'm happy they saved it.
How strange, was it the wind? It looks like a case of bad hair!
So sad. Because of the chance of storm damage from many of our taller, older oaks, Tampa Electic came through several months ago, before the hurricane season and cut back trees until they look like this one. Butchered!Hate the results.
Looks like it could fall on over!
It doesn't look too bad - and that is one big tree! A short trunk and many branches.
