Walking through Harris Park.

A week ago Sunday, strong wind and rain battered the Forest City, and its trees - big and small. Tonnes of debris still lines walking routes throughout Harris and Gibbons Park and elsewhere.

Bark, sapwood and heartwood are clearly visible (above), and if one likes counting rings to estimate the age of a tree, the opportunity exists.

I estimate my dad was but a twinkle in his father's eye when this tree first poked it's head above the ground in Harris Park, beside the Thames River.
