Barks are just like skin to us. As we grow, our skin adjusts itself to the ever increasing content of flesh and bones without cracking. But trees have barks that crack. And the way they crack is their very own signature, trees of the same specie will crack in the same manner. These are Khaya trees planted in rows at Batu Tiga resting area as we enter the Highway towards Kuala Lumpur International Airport. I stopped for a while and angled the camera towards the bark.
Bark is showing records how severe the weather is and the hardship the tree has to endure. I think moss growing on the barks is an indication about east west orientation.
If you find it painful to see the barks for too long, I can understand why....
But khaya trees are just changing
to bigger cloths
as they grow larger....
No cause for alarm.
