Life after Lightening Strike

Kentucky Coffee tree lives on, 2 years after lightening strike.


I came across this Kentucky Coffee tree on my lunch today. The tree was hit by lightening a couple of years ago. The top photo shows that one branch is still living. Below the strip of bark surviving is still getting nutrients to the tree.

I first came to this tree in May 2009. The tree had just been struck by lightening. A squirrel was laying dead next to the tree.  So the tree continues to survive. Part of its survival is based on the Park department not cutting the tree down.


Here is the link that will show my past posts on Kentucky Coffee trees.

Even when disaster strikes, let us not give up on life. There is much to enjoy. With Jesus we can be an encouragement to others.
