The poor tree is completely destroyed ... but when you're young, thought it was cute to write on the trees ... without considering the consequences..have a nice day
et encore le tatouage est assez beau,souvent c'est n'importe quoi. Mais c'est vrai, autant qu'il se tatoue lui meme
I agree with you, show off of art talent could have been done better elsewhere!
I'm with you! Leave Mother Nature alone...
Good question. The need to deface property by some misguided folks always amazes me. It is so juvenile and disrespectful. It must have taken some time to carve this design; too bad someone didn't stop the vandal!
that's really amazing, indeed!what an interesting shot, randy!happy new year!betty
Aww! come on Randy, where's your romantic side, at least it's pretty, the tree will be just fine haha!
You are absolutely right!
It's pretty, but I would have to agree, leave the trees alone.
Me too Randy, I get very upset when I see this kind of thing...
I agree 100%, Randy. :(
Totally agree with you!
She or he tattooed the tree!
I agree with you and I think the tattoo ought to be right on top of their empty heads!
my name is Theresa, but i swear it wasn't me!
It's such a hard thing to see the tree defaced, but the art is lovely.
I guess the lovely white bark was too tempting for someone.
You say everything!However..very romantic!I love this composition with all snow, great capture!Léia
I agree! I prefer nature looking like nature, not like somebody's sketch pad.
The day will come when trees rebel and begin carving on people. (just my imagination running wild but would make a good horror flick)
While it may seem to be a selfish act, Aspens are the perfect canvas and it does little harm to the tree. I can agree with a thoughtful, well done carving, but others that are not as detailed seem to be a waste
And once it begins it will spread over the whole tree!
This is really beautiful...I think youth doesn't know better. Nice shot.
That is too bad for the tree. :(
Harmful or not harmful that's not the problem! Trees are living beings, they do not exist for such purposes. This is disrespectful toward the nature.
Wonderful shot, Randy! From across my office, it looks like a pewter candle holder. :) Try it!
Those are actually some very nice tree carvings and a great photo too.Way back when the French and the Spanish used to use these types of trees to carve on to mark their trails to and from places, including to hidden treasure.I'm just saying....
totally agreealso there's just so much going onjust a simple heart with the namesis all that's needed - if you *have*to butcher a tree :)
I dunno... Beats me just as much as when I see the same kind of thing carved into the walls of historic monuments like Versailles...
I don't think it will hurt the tree but there probably are better places to showcase one's art. On a mountain ranch in Colorado around the old corrals I happened on some carvings on several aspen trees. Many had dates in the 1940's and 50's along with names, so I guess they last a long time?
Inspiration! So beautiful this picture! Have a nice week.
Why not! I love it. As long as they didn't carve too deep or all the way around the tree, it should not interrupt the sap flow; the tree should be fine...Is this considered vandalism where you live? This shot certainly generated a lot of comments in the 'no tree carving' category. barb
I don't believe I have ever seen that much art on a live aspen before.
Yes marking the tree isn't the greatest idea, but it does make for a good photo. :)
Why is a good question to many things that don't have answers. I'm with you, leave mother nature alone.
I have the same reaction to this that I have to graffiti (or, as some like to call it, "street art.") What gives some people the feeling that they have the right to deface things that don't belong to them? What makes them think that other people want to see things that are personal to them?Sincerely yours,Curmudgeonly Jack
I'm with you, I don't like it and we need all the trees we can get!
I couldn't agree more with you, Randy!
It is actually nice artwork, but of course I am with you... save it for the tattoo, or ink on paper... not the trees!
It can be a dilemma. I often like the art but hate to feature vandalism. True in this case since I like it!
Too much carving and the tree will die.
... if the tree could have decided for himself...
