Dear friends. A dear friend of mine on Facebook, who lives overseas respect to me, visited a place called "Calaveras Big Trees State Park", a place famous for its majestic old trees. She snapped a few pictures, one of them is that you can see here (she allowed me to post it). I, in this regard, am extremely upset! Perhaps all the people who pass them, are beautiful happy to be photographed under that tree, but many ignore the crime that has been made against this, that it is a living creature. All for what? To entertain visitors to the park? So dear friends, I am a lover of nature. I find in this picture, something which the human being must absolutely ashamed. Look at this picture, and judge for yourself, the wound that has been made in this centuries-old tree! What do you think?

It is not something I agree with at all in breaking up the trees. Just for tourist or any other reason. I too love the nature Alessandro. I do not see the purpose of such activities. It is very sad for the tree.

It is a shame what has happened to that tree. We should respect trees and flowers, etc.

Surely the tree still lives, but was seriously injured! These things, to me, they literally disgusted!

It's awful, and the tree is barely alive because of it.

Dear Dawn, you have granted me to say that this picture was taken by you. Can I just ask what have you thought when you saw what mess?

what happened to that tree? why it has a hole in the center. if it is human made, they should not have done that. Why? It is because it represents time as they will be growing along with year.

As I said in a previous comment, I believe that this tree is still alive and will grow over the years. But unfortunately, it has been seriously injured! This is something that no one would ever had to do!
