The Crowhurst Yew, Taxus baccata, in Surrey, England  Among the tombstones of a churchyard in Crowhurst stands an ancient yew with a girth of 31 feet. The tree is estimated to be more than 1,500 years old. When the villagers hollowed out the trunk in 1820, they found a cannonball embedded there, a relic of the English Civil War. The farm across from the church may have been the intended target because of its owner’s staunch Royalist beliefs.

Photographer Beth Moon Spent 14 Years Hunting for the World's Most Ancient Trees

A fotógrafa americana Beth Moon passou 14 anos, percorrendo todos os cantos do planeta, registrando antigas árvores em preto e branco. Sua série chamada Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time, com 60 fotografias. Via

Rilke's Bayon. Beth Moon’s stunning images capture the power and mystery of the world’s remaining ancient trees. These hoary forest sentinels are among the oldest living things on the planet and it is desperately important that we do all in our power to ensure their survival. I want my grandchildren – and theirs – to know the wonder of such trees in life and not only from photograpshs of things long gone. Beth’s portraits will surely inspire many to help those working to save these…
