A collection of photos of great free standing "dead" trees.
This old tree (Some kind of Gum) is at the side of the road in Koraleigh, NSW, Australia. We were told that aboriginals would split a branch of a young tree, and rejoin it around something to create a ring they'd use for target practice with their spears. -Clancy Wolf
Cradle Valley, Tasmania
I saw this tree while hiking in Cradle Valley, Tasmania. What struck me was how the branches had fallen and showed a pretty clear example of how the nutrients were staying local.
Roadside tree in Gloucestershire, UK. No comment other than this was the first one I saw after getting home from the Australia tour. -Neil Strong
Tree and Moon
This tree was at the top of a hill at Mt. Gipps Station in NSW, Australia. This was at the end of our second day of driving and touring. We pulled into the old sheep station right at sunset, and our host, Kym, led us up to the top of one of the nearby hills for some snacks. As the sun went down, the moon came out and this image emerged. -Clancy
