I love this platanus orientalis

I love old trees! Especially the thought that so many people have seen this tree. Enjoyed new leaves, sheltered in the shade. This oriental plantain is really old. (Planted around 1850)

Ik houd van oude bomen! Vooral de gedachte dat zoveel mensen deze boom gezien hebben. Vol bewonderdinggeweest zijn, hebben genoten van nieuwe bladeren, geschuild in de schaduw. Deze oosterse plantaan is echt oud. (Geplant: Ca 1855)


Trunk Circumference: 4.52 meter

Garden
In my view, this tree grows in the garden of the town hall in Tiel. My husband (he works there) sent me this pictures today with his  telephone. He knows that I love trees.

Volgens mij staat deze boom in de tuin van het gemeentehuis in Tiel. Mijn man (hij werkt daar) stuurde de foto's via zijn telefoon. Hij weet dat ik van oude bomen houd.


Plantanus Orientalis

Trees have their seasons at certain times of the year when they bring forth fruit; but a Christian is for all seasons.

Is there in your neighborhood a special tree?

    1. Great! Oaks are impressive. In the past it were the sacred trees for us Teutons :-)

  6. Hoi, dat is echt een oude koest, zo noem je toch 'n oude boom? Bij diverse kastelen in ons land staan ook vaak eeuwen oude bomen.
    Leuk ook in het Nederlands dank je wel.
    Groet kees.

  9. Hi Jedidja, I really like this post! You know, I saw a big, big tree on my walk yesterday, but it is so hard to get a really good picture of a big tree. Your husband's photo is excellent! Thank you for sharing your blog and for your kind comments on mine. Hope you have a fine week ahead!

  13. Here en España these very old trees, They are called "singular tree" because they stand out from the others by its size, shape or age.

  14. It is a beautiful old tree! We have many old oak trees where I live and our city has laws about cutting them down. You must be approved and get a permit.

  15. How lovely, a magnificent old tree. We used to have a large tree in our neighborhood that a Confederate general supposedly rested under, but it was cut down years ago due to it being so close to the owner's house. I was very sorry to see it go but obviously safety comes first. Long may that old tree in your photos remain healthy and strong :)

    1. Sometimes arise disputes between neighbors because one wants to keep trees and the other wants them cut down :( Some old trees are protected here by the government. Yes, sometimes we feel sad about it ... but safety is very important.

  18. I love trees! I love trees in the summer with all their leaves and I love trees in the winter when they are bare and the shape of the tree is especially noticeable. Love them in all seasons. The shape of the leaves are also so interesting.

  19. I have always loved trees. I did a science project on trees when I was in school. Love the shapes of trees and the shape of their leaves. The bare tree in the winter is as lovely as the summer tree with it's foliage! To me, that is!
