Quaking Aspens
These beautiful cold weather trees have an attractive white bark which is mostly smooth. Its common for aspen trees to grow to 100' tall and they can live to be 40 to 150 years old.


The reflection of the tree from the front part of modern building in Vilnius, Lithuania. Quite a philosophical shot - will we still see some trees in 100 years?

Enjoy it!

Tree Graffiti

These aspen trees are easy to carve graffiti into because they have a fairly smooth soft bark so its easy for people to leave their mark. The San francisco Peaks north of Flagstaff Arizona is a great place to observe the Aspen groves during the wonderful fall color change.
