I took my daughter to a local theme park and had to take a shot of this tree. It is a sycamore that was woven together as it grew into this incredible subject - the trunk is about 4 feet across!

Thanks for the post, pshcooley. Amazing! I googled 'woven sycamore tree' andgot this early hit that shows sycamores and other trees being woven. http://www.punkasspunk.com/circus/ Nothing quite as intricate as yours, though. Nice job!

fmoore - those are the same trees, the one I posted is in the list of trees inside the park titled "Basket Tree". The park is a nice place to take young children and their grandparents, not enough adrenaqline thrills for the teen/twenties crowd. There are beautiful gardens and they moved many of these incredible trees across the Santa Cruz mountains to their new home!
