Death of a Tree #ThursdayTreeLove
BE LIKE A TREE

- Turn over a new leaf
- Bend before you break
- Enjoy your unique natural beauty
- Keep growing
I got this beautiful message on Whatsapp last week and I just had to share it.
While walking past Babulnath Temple I noticed the stumps of an old tree, blackened and stripped of all its glory. Till as late as last year it was showing signs of old age, though it was hacked here and there to prevent it from breaking, falling and damaging other structures around it .
It was a grand old tree, with a huge canopy that gave shade in the sun and shelter in the rain. Sadly, it grew too big and became a potential danger, having fallen branches during several rainstorms. So it had to be hacked and its threat contained.
Alas! In their effort to preserve things around it , the tree itself is now dead .
Isn’t that a real shame ?
I’m linking this up with Parul’s #ThursdayTreeLove. Do join in on Thursday with a photograph of a tree and the hashtag.
Hope the trees still standing don’t fall in the current monsoons!
