I love misfits. They have personality! Especially the kissing trees....

From a Forester or a land owner who is looking to see some logs they need to go.

But they have other benefits that are hard to place a value on. They make a walk in the woods interesting and they make homes for animals.

Native Americans call those unique trees "Person Trees". My daughter co-authored a paper about them when she was a student at Northern Michigan University. I'm not sure if it's still available online somewhere. It was titled "The Personhood of Trees".

I love the special trees!

I am glad that I am not a forester or that kind of landowner.

Thanks for sharing.

Love the trees and the idea that the trees are "Person Trees". I'll look online for "The Personhood of Trees".

My woodlot is not big, only about 20 acres, but everyday when I walk down to get the mail I take the long way back thru the woods. I'm still finding trees that I didn't notice on previous walks.
As I cut trees to improve wildlife habitat and improve the growth of remaining trees I find I'm not having the heart to cut these oddball trees.

They're not oddballs....they're special
