It seems the closer to sun the more senses of protecting plants people have, maybe they need the shadow of the trees:)
All these 3 lived in Ankor wat of Cambodia. There're also a lot of old and big trees in South China, but the photos lost. As a visitor from a concrete forest like Shanghai, I really felt the freedom breath of the lives while seeing the big trees.
The hole of the first tree can hold at least 3 adults. Bears family can live there:). Almost 1/3 was cut, it still grows tall and strong, very respectable.
The 3rd one was one of the fast growing and short life tree. As reading the short life from the introduction, I thought it was 10 or 20 years, but not, it's 300 years, trees have long life then mankind.
