Toronto Stumped

These stump pictures cover a span of about ten years. Some were after storms had brought these trees down, others of tree cut due to being rotten at the core (like some of us lol) – others I suspect were removed to improve the view.

Williamson Ravine Dec 21 2020

Winter Solstice was a perfect day for a visit to the Williamson Ravine, while we still have access to it & while it remain intact. It will soon become a major construction zone & probably be closed for any public use until that construction is over. No, they aren’t putting in condos but Metrolinx is adding another line to the tracks than run though the north end of the Ravine. For more info:

In The Trees

I took these August 2020. I’ve seen many pictures of tress in context, in contrast with their setting, in groups & thought – it’s time for a different angle 🙂 I’ve made no attempt at identifying them either – i.e. maple vs oak vs birch. Each pair is of the same tree. No captions for these – just enjoy 🙂
