it (so often around here it's on a farm). Turns out the tree shading
the point is a most wonderful climbing tree. Serioulsy, this is the
perfect example of a tree that lives to be climbed! The bark grows in
big ripples that are solid so you can use them as handholds, there are
many branchings with large flat areas for sitting in, the trunk splits
early so you have nice thick branches going up, it's got it all! In
fact, what you see behind me is just one of the branches, I took this
picture from in the tree.
