The Old Dog Presents: The Tenacious Tree Contest!

in contest •  6 months ago 

What does it mean to be tenacious? Here are just a few ideas:

"Tending to keep a firm hold of something. Not readily relinquishing a position. Determined. Persisting in existence. Unwilling to accept defeat or stop doing something"

Here's My Example Of A Tenacious Tree!

I saw this fig tree while visiting the spectacular town of Sirmione Italy this past weekend.

I think that tenacious is the best way to describe this tree as it pushes through this stone wall!

Here's a closer look at this powerful snake like tree clinging to the wall!

Despite its precarious perch this fig tree looks vibrant and healthy!

Now It's Your Turn To Show Me Tenacious Trees!

Thank you @kus-knee for your awesome contests 👍

Every i visit Bangkok i always take to the streets it's amazing what you see and learn plus it's a great friendly atmosphere on the streets . So i found this old abandon hotel looking like a French /Italian structure would make a great restoration job for someone before all these Banyan tress take over completely they were growing out of the seams of the brick work all around the building.

You're welcome. Thanks for hosting a fun contest.

Truly tenacious!! Who can resist?? That is an amazing fig tree?? I have hundreds of figs now, last season, wild turkeys ate some of the fruit that fell on the ground of our weekend house and, well, let's just say the fertilized and reseeded the entire yard with figs!

I hope to find one that will be fitting of your fig, although that will be a hard one to beat! :)

Hello, @kus-knee, here's my entry for this week.

Great, thanks!

Here's my example of a tenacious tree, obviously there has been a lot of erosion over it's lifetime but it is still holding strong. This phone was taken on a camping trip in what was once a thriving gold town, it is now completely deserted.


Here is another great example from Bolivia.


Thanks for the entry!

Tenacious Tree because even with a big part of his roots ripped off, he is still beautiful and strong

wonderful idea! (as always). very up to me.
upv+reblog, and here is my entry #1


this pine bites into the strongest granite with its very long roots. it is impossible to tumble down, unlike spruce. shot by me at the Ladoga skerries, taken from my steemit blog.

Thanks for your entry!

It is quite a strange root! I am very excited to go in search of exotic trees

I hope that you find something!

I think I have found this Bodhi Tree, and it has some weird look!
