Giant Trees

 

As Infamous travels south, I am noticing that people are naming giant trees.  There must be something in our human nature that is fascinated by them.  We are in awe of these tremendous giants that live many times longer than our lifetimes.  If you want to learn more about big trees, check out this website http://www.americanforests.org/resources/bigtrees/.

Here is a giant Live Oak, in Savannah, GA called the Majestic Oak.

The tree above is a non-native species called the Mysore Fig.  It is the largest of its kind in the United States.  It was planted by a friend of Thomas Edison’s in Estero, near Fort Myers, Florida.  This guy has his own website where you can read all about it.  Notice the picture of it is GIANT, TOO.  This picture is from the  Mysorefigtree.com website.  

(If I see any more giant things on this trip,  I will let you know.)  Infamousg.
