Do you have a favourite tree?
An individual or a species ....
I was a bit disappointed that J. R. Tolkien's favourite is said to be a SE European pine:
I rather expected a mighty black poplar or maybe a willow ....
I don't know whether that tree inspired any of his writing but a couple of trees nearby, looking rather the worse for wear (they're all over a century old) look as if they might have been inspiration for the ents or Fangorn Forest:
"We are on Earth to do good to others.
What the others are here for, I don't know."
