Every great tree has a story, only we don’t always know it. Such is the case with the tree noticed by a a friend in Lake Travis, TX. Judging by the withered, gnarled shape, the tree is certainly an older specimen. It has been living quietly, oblivious to the profound changes caused by growth and drought to the land directly west of Austin. No doubt home to many animals, the tree continues on its merry way. Let’s hope it continues undisturbed for many years.
