Mature

Rhododendron arboreum

Pele La, Bhutan

This particular tree truly impressed me with its height, at least 8 - perhaps 10 meters tall, its shape and signs of age and all the amazing lichen!

Its base was a high trunk with no branches, just like a mature tree, and the lower inflorescences only reachable for birds, as there was no branch low enough to grab on to climb up.

It grows just a few centimeters a year, so this one is several hundred years old, yet only about to reach middle age.

The lichen is also a good indicator of age and stability, as it grows just a few millimeters per year and thus the base on which it grows must be much older than a human. I don’t know the growth rate or species of the beard-like lichen seen here, but let’s say it grows 5mm per year and it is 1 meter long, that’s 200 years, and that again is just this one branch of this amazing tree.

I can’t help myself, but will probably post yet another picture of this specimen later, in portrait, and this is already the second image I’ve posted of this tree  The previous was a framing of the lichen.
