Scarlet oak

Yesterday at dusk.


  1. My neighbour has a plantation of these, and has recently been thinning them out. The felled trees are now in metre lengths, split, stacked, and I've bought them!

    There are still plenty of them and they look spectacular in autumn; even though his are planted in straight lines.

    1. Oh how wonderful. Straight line are better than no trees at all. What are you thiinking you'll do with the timber Cro?

    2. Ah. Well, they should keep you warm!

  2. And look how small it was 8 years ago…

  3. It really is a beautiful tree. I hope I shall be sitting under it again one day.
