Treehugger: Black Cottonwood With Lee-Anne (new!)
The cottonwoods featured in this image come from near Fernie, British Columbia. They are some of the oldest in the world, over 400 years old - a very respectable age for this fast-growing deciduous. To stand next to them, diminished by their deeply-grooved trunks all wrapped in their glorious moss skirting, is a grand thing. You want to listen deeply to what they have to say.
