The urge to inflict our vision of how other life forms should live out their existence is alive and well! Most people appreciate and enjoy the way trees express their individuality in the way they grow, others sadly feel they must be controlled. Both these snaps were taken recently in Akaroa. The first image with Cabbage trees saddens me, they have had their outer protective leaves brutely torn off and discarded. Probably because they look 'untidy' and may drop off. The irony to me was the rest of the garden was overgrown and ramshackled.
I wouldn't want to have to get down this fire escape in a hurry in bare feet. It ends in the middle of a sawn off Yew tree, bizzare!
