Tourist Trees

Whenever I see a big truck laden with mature trees I always think the trees have taken over the minds of their humans and commanded them to conduct a Tour.

 

Trucks like this are a common [think Daily] sight on the highway near our house. The market in mature-age trees must be enormous!

Hou la la, quel chargement !
Ray: Une véritable forêt d'arbres en mouvement, Martine!
Quite a sight, Ray, he could do with a longer trailer though...
Ray: It seems to be a feature of these travelling trees...that they like to dangle a long way over the back of the tour bus...a bit like kids trailing their fingers in the wake of the rowboat their Dad is using to punt them across the lake...
That's an interesting thing... I'd think trees would grow very well where you are - or do you just have slow growing species?
Ray: There are slow-growers and rapid-growers, Elizabeth.

It seems many species of mature trees are quite relaxed about being dug up, transported and replanted.

Perhaps they are going on holiday? Perhaps a circular tour?
Ray: Off to the beach for the weekend, I suspect, Alan.
Impressionant de voir ce chargement ..Tant mieux si une nouvelle vie leur est offerte a ces arbres
Bonne journée Ray
Ray: Oui. Il est tout à fait possible que ce soit venu d'une partie de terrain qui était en train de devenir une route, Claudine ... alors une nouvelle vie est bien meilleure que d'être convertie en bois de chauffage.

I wonder where they plant them, and for what - landscaping?
Ray: Yes...they are used in landscaping, Chris...within a year they will have put down extensive roots and will be providing a shady umbrella in a garden.

The trees have still their roots - what might happen with them? I don't understand your title, sorry.
Ray: These trees will be given a new home, Philine...within a year they will have sunk new roots into a new home, and will be providing a dense, leafy umbrella in a landscaped garden.

My title is an attempt at a joke...on seeing a truck laden with trees like this, I always imagine the trees are in a Tour Bus for Trees, and perhaps taking a holiday at a beach! Sometimes my sense of humour does not translate well! smile
I wonder where they are digging them up from?!
Ray: Most likely they are coming from a site that does not need trees, Tom...a road extension, or a city building block redevelopment.
A most interesting thing to see, your notes suggest there is quite a market for this sort of thing.
Ray: Based on the movements I see on the highway, Brian, I have to conclude that the market is huge despite the fact that these trees cost a fortune to purchase.
Though more costly mature trees gives a landscaper a great workable advantage. I like the row of stupas in the background - ready for pick up.
Ray: A few of these trees can dramatically accelerate a landscaping project, for sure, Mary...although, they cost a fortune.
Trees on the march! Look out!
