"Youth is a gift of nature, but age is a work of art" Stanislaw Jerzy Lec
Looking for the perfect gift! Tired of tacky or impersonal 80 year birthday gifts. We found a tree that was established in 1938, and created this stunning image of its annual rings. Each of the 80 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."
This tree was harvested from a mountain forest in western Montana as part of our efforts to restore a stand of old growth trees. Learn more about our forest restoration projects.
100% cotton. Birthday gift idea for dad, father, brother, friend, husband, uncle, etc.
