Our Little Corner of the World...

Meet Jeffrey...

Jeffrey Pine that is!!!

"I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live
than other things do."
Willa Cather

Soooo....why do you suppose this ol' pine has had to live with his limbs
growing at right angles???

When I looked up Jeffrey pine...all their branches were nicely shaped with the tree...
sooo, why are these at right angles???

  1. hee hee...
    «Louis» gives up - do YOU know why the trees limbs are growing at odd angles? :-)

  2. Great tree shot!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  3. I hope you're going to tell us Chieftess :))

  4. Funky. Since it's so much taller, I'd think it was storm damage.

  5. Just a was really windy up there...between that and the snow...perhaps weighting these limbs down??? Other than that...your guess is as good as mine!!!

  6. Well I give up!!! Google + has me completely baffled!!! I tried to comment on Dirk's blog...there was a button to click on for blogger...thought it would post on his site...who knew it would post on my site?!!!!

    I will generally try to comment on everyone's blog who comments...but I can't seem to do that on Google + !!!

  7. Jeffrey has a will of his own!

  8. A tree with personality!
    I don't know much, but I have an answer for the quandary!
    The limbs of most trees grow to sunlight.
    the limbs of pine trees (and some others) grow towards the pull of gravity.

  9. That is one cool tree! I love the blue sky, too!

  10. How ya doin', Jeffrey. How's the weather up there?

  11. Wow!!! I'm impressed Pat!!! I guess that makes sense!

    Thanks Bibi and Brian!!!

  12. It's windy and starting to get cold Margaret!!!
