Long crazy story me not getting any sleep tonight lol
We only have one type of Maple in the UK they are lovely trees. I'd love to see the Great Redwoods in America, one day maybe.
And yes, I know what you mean, ALL trees are amazing! Most main streets and even residential (like mine) in my town are tree lined with many over 200
years old. Every now and then someone driving too fast crashes into one and dies with the cars absolutely ruined but the tree going 'meh' and carrying
on doing it's thing unaffected. Of course relatives of the deceased always campaign they should be cut down but citizen power always wins the day.
When I visit towns with few or no trees they seem soulless places where I would never want to live.
We have a few Yew trees in the UK between 3000 and possibly 9000 years old can you imagine that. I keep meaning to do a tour one day to visit some,
but procrastination n all, one day lol.
Hard for me to comprehend a tree living for such a long time, trees so old they were alive when there was no North Sea and Britain was still connected
to Europe so you could walk across!
