Grown into wire fence
I think it's fascinating the way trees will grow around wire fencing. This wire fence appears to have been erected after the trees were planted.
Piece of tree trunk
Top and bottom of the trunk has been cut off.
Cut off a few feet above the ground
I am linking to Good Fences HERE.
A fascinating piece of natural art and a great find.
Wow. I have never seen such a thing before. Very interesting.

That is some tree and fence art there CameraGirl! We definitely have barbed wire that the trees when used as posts just grew right over the wire!
So which do you think came first, the tree or the fence?
Nature's art; is there anything more beautiful?
Trees and water do what they like. We just sit back and watch and sometimes cut. hahahaha
Such a great piece of art!
Good grief....how fun is this. :)
I like the way these remnants look... quite stark.
These images brought back fond memories of a house we formerly lived in - had trees from the original owner growing through the fence. And yes, we ended up cutting a few, as well. :)
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my Good Fences #22.
btw My husband has spotted a very young cedar along the fence line that he will be moving.
Yeah, that is so interesting, isn't it! Great photos1
Yes, I love this beautiful art on the fence! Wonderful photos!
haha. we have some of those around here, too. just yesterday, coming back from town, had to do a double-take to see what was hanging off a fence - yup, grown-in tree parts. :)
I've seen trees and fences in some places like this before. Shows how tenacious nature can be: I'll grow, despite you, dammit!!
Just amazing pictures!
Wow, that is too funny! I've seen trees grown around trail sign when out hiking.
I had a tree and fnce like this but I cut the fence and let the tree
What a fascinating find!
I've had that happen to me EG, some mature plants get really 'attached' and hug the fence :)
Nature always finds a way!
Thank you for commenting on my blog. Thought I'd come over and check out yours. I'm going to sign on to follow. I invite you to sign on and follow mine as well, if you haven't already done so! LOL.
I am always fascinated by the things that nature creates. This was a nice find.
it is fascinating how they do it, but not when it does it. we had one do this to our fence, and bob cut it off down to the ground, it came back even taller than it was in the beginning.... this one looks like it will not be back though. i like the left over piece hanging up in the top
Great, brings back memories of problems we had with small trees doing this on our fencing in Italy!
They sure do love growing against fences!:) I have a hard time cutting them down. In one area, I actually cut around the tree so that the tree could branch out.
That is certainly unusual!Beautiful shots!

I have a wisteria tree/shrub that has grown into the holder I put next to it so it would stand up but I fear it damaged the tree, although it still blooms every year but does not have lots of blossoms.
Cool, but I wonder why the tree was cut down.
It is amazing how nature adapts.
Thats a great find!
Nature is amazing, great find!
We have a few like that behind our house in the baseball field. So interesting!! Great pics and addition to the fence meme.
It's fantastic to see how tree can grow.
Nature is strong!
Poor tree picked a bad spot to grow! Neat fence find, great shot!
It is fascinating. But it's also sad in a way...
Interestingly, no damage to the fence!
I really like these photos . . . Like the interesting determined tree growth . . .
It is really clinging! Here, the tree branches grow into the power lines. The workers just have to leave them alone.
very decorative really. :)
It is amazing how much trees can live through/around and still survive. And amazing the fence is not in worse shape.
Wow, I've never seen trees and fences like this; How unique :-)
And I LOVE your title "Natural Additions", EG.

Trees are determined survivors. The ones you feature went to a lot of trouble to grow around the wire.
Those were certainly fascinating and interesting to see. Great shots!
Usually you don't see such pieces in such a well maintained fence. Perhaps the owner has an artistic sensibility?
That is so odd! It looks like someone tried to cut the tree out of the fence. I'm not sure, though. Nice addition to Good fences!
Now this is very cool. At first I thought that was a toad hanging upside down! It's all tree parts.
I have a bit of a tree in a fence just like this. Great photos.
Very good pictures! Yes, I have seen this happen. Trees will grow into things if they have nowhere to expand. Makes an interesting
I would call this a real natural modern art !
The power of growth.
I nailed a horseshoe to our Walnut tree so the kid(s) could hang up their ponies. It started with my eldest at 4 yrs old. We lived there 30 years + 4 children and the horseshoe was well used and the tree finally swallowed the whole horseshoe. We were forced out of our little farm by "progress" and my beloved Walnut tree was cut down.
Good thing they trimmed the trees before it brought the fence down.
I love seeing the ways that trees grow around fences!!
