Tree Porn: Death On A Cliff

We’d love to have a huge photo collection of dead trees at the foot of water.

And for good measure, the super wide-angle shot.

Each time we come across one the tree and watery scene behind it is more and more different than all of the previous ones that we’ve seen.

A 275.5 Million Dollar Tree Grows In Brooklyn

We here at BeehiveHairdresser are very much pro-life when it comes to trees.  Trees purify the air and create shade for other living things to live happily under.  However, when a small tree starts growing along the F train at 4th Avenue station, especially when the station was just rehabilitated as part of a $275.5 million rehabilitation project to fix the Culver Viaduct, we question the validity of the tree’s life.

A tree is growing directly between the concrete and steel that is holding the station up and will only make the station less structurally sound if it is allowed to grow larger.

So, um… MTA folks.  We know that you are incredibly busy running the massive transit system in and around New York City, but could you please send someone out to the Manhattan bound tracks of the F & G subway line at 4th Avenue/9th Street to remove the tree so that we didn’t just spend $275.5 million to have a tree make the subway structurally unsound.  Thanks in advance!

Tree Porn: Reincarnate

Though we ran a post back in January of 2011 about the death of a weeping willow in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, we are happy to say that death sure did bring about a new beginning and life for this particular tree.

All that it took was the death of all of its branches and the majority of its trunk for it to start fresh.

Daffodils And Dead Trees

It’s been months since Hurricane Sandy knocked over many trees in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

Now that is is spring, it’s all daffodils and dead trees.

Tree Porn: Treehuggers

We don’t know what these two ladies may or may not have been on, but the one of the right spent several minutes trying to do handstands that ended up with her falling onto her head repeatedly before running up to that cherry tree and giving it a big long hug.

Oh treehuggers, you’re usually drunk or high on something.
