Informazioni sull’ubicazione dell’albero e come raggiungerlo: prima di salire a Montebibico si incontra un edicola, prendere la prima strada sterrata a sinistra, circa duecento metri sulla destra si incontra una recinzione e poi un cancello, dentro c’è uno splendido castagneto con molti esemplari pluricentenari, questo è il più grande e il più vecchio.
Descrizione: da sempre il castagno ha avuto un ruolo di primo piano nell’economia della montagna spoletina sia per i frutti, localmente chiamati “marroni”, sia come legno da travi, in molte delle grandi cattedrali tedesche provengono da qui

An amazing tree hollowed out like this, am wondering wether its still alive and if so, how.


High POV by lovely tree-house in the prairie
and indeed as always great details and lights well done SILVIO SORCINI

Wow! Amazing capture of this hollowed tree. Looks like this tree is still alive. Good pov and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello,excellent idea to have a person in the tree for scale!Interesting and artistic composition with super details.Best wishes Otto.

Hi Silvio, This is a perfect place to protect yourself from rain. I like the scale you gave here. A small woman in a big hole under a huge tree trunk. The thin tree branches enhance the scale of the tree trunk perfectly. Thank very much

Que bela imagem, Silvio, dessa árvore que faz parte da história dos povos.
Uma foto soberba,

Quelle iamge la dame dans le tronc de cet immense arbre c'est splendide et sueprbe quelle vue et iamge quel captage grandiose
Bonne et heureuse année 2014

Bonjour Silvio
It seems that tree looks a little like thr great sequoias in california
I remember being in one with my children.I could not think that a castagno could be so large and live s many years . In France castagnos in Ardeche are very small in comparison.
A good idea to show the woman completely inside.Maybe I should have like her a little more bright
I try a WS to show you what I mean
Have a good Sunday , Silvio
