If I Ruled the World – #1

There would be no trees allowed to take root and grow where they clearly ought not to.  Some, of course, will see a monument to life’s resilience and persistence, instead of ruined sight lines.

Soaring arches form the support for a road overhead.

There would be a place to stand for a view of every bridge; a view without intruding branches and signs.

Rusty railway bridge with intruding branches and signsThere would be more street signs like this one.

One-Way sign, almost completely faded out.And more doors like this one.

Old doors with broken window panes in abandoned warehouseYou lose some, you win some.

    Having seen what tree roots can do to ancient structures — think of Angkor Was, say, or the ancient baths in Gondor, Ethiopia — I wonder if there are any instances of trees bringing down bridges. The sheer power of growth, in roots and trunks, is often underestimated.
