Lone Tree Late Summer

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 12 September 2014 in Plant & Nature.

I pass by this tree often. I like seeing it change with the seasons. It is on a farm that was sold and is supposed to be turned into a multi-use site with parkland but there is a lawsuit that has been going on for years. The original landowners claim that the buyers are not abiding by the original contract agreement and want to use the land for an industrial site.

Strange how 'lone' trees make such a strong statement - this is a fine example strongly presented.
