Looking for the perfect 45th gift! We found a tree that was established in 1973, and created this stunning image of its annual rings. Each of the 45 annual rings represents one year of the tree's life. In the words of Herman Hesse "one can read its whole history in the luminous inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured." Or as Stanislaw Jersey Lec said "Youth is a gift of nature, but age is a work of art".
