Explore Thuja Occidentalis, Safe Journey, and more!

The Witch Tree is an ancient Thuja occidentalis growing on the shore of Lake Superior near Grand Marais.  The tree is held sacred by the Ojibwe, who traditionally leave offerings of tobacco to ensure a safe journey on Lake Superior. Due to its sacred nature and vandalism problems in the past, the tree is considered off limits to visitors unless accompanied by a local Ojibwe band member.

This tree in Denmark has not been shaped. It grows in the shaped of the house, probably because that's the only part protected from the extreme wind.

Photographer Marianne Kjølner snapped this pair of photographs of a bizarre tree in Denmark - West coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter.

A Heart..

Amazing, a heart shaped opening in a tree trunk.and the tree is rooted and growing in what appears to be an old cemetery. Beautiful but perhaps just a bit sad as well, I love it.
