Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

This is my favorite tree.  I’m pretty sure it’s a birch, but it has grown in ways I’ve never seen a birch grow.  It is a tribute to nature’s ingenuity.  Growth.

    That definitely is a birch, and definitely rare to see a birch grow like this. Where is this?

    • Thanks for commenting and confirming! It’s on a defunct golf course in Grand Rapids, Michigan. A preserve purchased the course and is letting it go back to nature–it’s pretty cool. I wonder if its growth trajectory had something to do with trimming over the years. The golf course was active for almost a hundred years I think, though I’m not sure how old a tree like this would be.

    I love all trees but this is my favourite. It’s a shame about its appearance – maybe it was damaged by a storm? Still it shows how robust it is and how it really just wants to grow. Thanks for sharing.
