Tree Healing

In this primarily hemlock-beech forest I discovered an Ash tree with a long scar running down the length of the trunk. I figured that this would be a good display of tree growth and how they adapt to life in the North country. I took a shot facing the sky in order to give you a better perspective of how long the scar was and so you could see it twist up the tree. It also captures the intricate pattern of the bark.
