Most people have seen scars on trees. Someone ties something around them, forgets about it, and before you know it you’ve got a ring around a tree where someone left a wire or a string, etc. Here’s an example in one of the large maple trees on the property.
What I thought made this interesting, is just how far up it is.
Below is the same tree, wider view, with the damaged ring circled in pink:
It’s pretty far up now, eh?
It makes me wonder which of my family members did it years ago. If I had to guess, I’d say my grandfather perhaps. Or maybe my dad, if maple trees grow that fast. I really don’t know. I just thought it was neat. I’ve seen things like that in trees before. But I don’t believe I’ve ever noticed one up that high.
