Theres a really neat old tree on my farm that i just think deserves a thread. Its an old sycamore that is hollow with a big hole in the side near the ground. Its probably 10 feet in diameter on the inside, and the walls are about two more feet. When the farm was logged off with the rest of the US in the 50's, they diddnt bother with it becuase it was hollow. The opening is just over 6' tall, so its exactly like a doorway. We call it the keebler tree because whenever i have young relatives over, i put candy in there beforehand, so they can find it as a gift from the keebler elves. If you know of any cool trees (excluding the one thats always on meme's that looks like a dick) post them below.

I love tree-colonies that are just one tree, like Pando

All that is just one tree. Jaw-dropping.

One tree, did you know that has the record of the world largest living organism?

I know it doesn't compeat, but there used to be a tree in my grandads garden that I have fond memmorys off, it was 12 ft tall, skinny as fuck, no wider then a cerial bowl, and it was compleatly hollow, from the bottom to the top, hollow. Yet, ti wasn't dead, every year it would bear the most amazing harvest of apples. Untill eventually one year the weak wooden trunk could no longer support it's apples and it colapsed in on itself. It never died, it kept providing apples for us intill the very end of it'f life, it worked itself to death. I know it was juts astupid apple tree, but I have very, very fond memmorys of picking apples from it as a child with my (Now dead) grandad, the stump is still there and every time I see it, I'm not ashamed to say, I tear up a little thinking about the happy time I had there.
