Scars

scarred tree trunk

 

Almost all of us have scars.  Some are usable. And some are hidden deep inside.

 

The tree in the photo is an example of visible scars.

 

The question is, what caused them.  Why would anyone deliberately hurt a tree?  These scars go deep.  The tree has been in its prominent location for many years.  It has provided shade and beauty.  It has also cleaned up tons of air over its lifetime.

 

We can only imagine what caused the scars it displays so proudly.  There is no doubt the tree did not deserve the scars.  No one really does.

 

 

I only hope that they do not hurt!

I have thought about writing an autobiography and calling it "Battle Scars".  It is the past that makes us who we are today and that causes us to grow.

Ralph and Jeanne I can relate to those scars, since I scar easily.  This season I managed to get a few new ones, wearing proudly not in my case :)

I think something hit the tree really hard; could have been a car or truck. I love trees and hate to see them cut down. Some cities have Tree Ordinances which are put in place to make sure trees are not destroyed needlessly.

Probably a car got too close, this is a tough tree and I am sure that it will heal just fine.
