I'm sad to hear about The Joshua Tree falling over, but it is immortalized now because of U2 and it will live forever.

It was the one tree on One Tree Hill in New Zealand that got chopped down by jerks.

The tree on One Tree Hill had to be removed because it was posing a danger to those who were visiting it. Somebody attacked it with a chainsaw way back when and it was supported with cables to try to keep it sturdy. Apparently, the cables weren't holding it up anymore, so officials in New Zealand decided that it would be best if it was just removed. It is sad, yes, but when I think about it, I wouldn't want to be visiting that tree and having it fall on me. Better to be safe.

However, the memory of both trees live on through U2's music.

Then it fell over. He took pics on Oct. 23 and made it an RIP stone monument.



Isn't it ironic that it fell just as things were really taking off for U2?

One last look at an old friend



RIP

Those are sad pics, Stormy.

It's amazing that a tree can make us emotional, ya know?

I work with a girl who went and saw the tree about 10 years ago...she said "you just come upon it" like it pops out of nowhere...and when it was still standing, it was hard to see from the road(she said). She said it "looked like a rooster"
I'd still really, really like to go to where the tree stood...stand where the boys did. So if you ladies get directions (i.e. 1.5 miles after mile marker 19 look left)could you post them here. I can assume it's hard to find though...especially since it's not there anymore.
Are there any towns nearby? You could ask the locals-they probably hear about it everyday.
Thanks.

Those are some really beautiful pics, stormy, thank you!!!!

You can see in a couple of them when the tree was still standing how flood waters were undercutting the soil at the base of the tree. This surely must have contributed to its demise

I found it several years ago when it was still standing. It's on the south side of Highway 190 on the way to Death Valley from either Lone Pine or Olancha California. You can get to the 190 from either town. Next time I go up there, which I do quite often, I'll measure the distance from the junction of the 136 and the 190, and I'll let you know. My husband and I spend a lot of time in the Owens Valley. Bodie is on the way there for those of you in Seattle. Bodie is where the pix were taken of the old, deserted town in the snow. It's a state park.

Awesome pics, but so sad. I wish I could have seen it when it was alive.
