Do You Give A #Monkeys?

Many years ago I planted two one metre high Araucaria trees in the plot of land around our house. I love monkey puzzle type trees. The dark foliage, needle type leaves and beautiful peeling bark are attractive. One of the two trees was sickly with yellowing branches and a couple of brown dead ones. I was given a discount for this one. After planting it flourished and the two trees provide shade and are taller than a three storey block of flats. During the hottest months irrigation keeps them healthy.

The Araucaria tree towers above me.

Tree sap oozes from the "painted" tree.

Recently someone was spraying with a can and some black paint landed on the bark of one of the two trees. The response was interesting. The tree was “wounded” and reacted by releasing sap. Lesson-respect nature.
