My friend on a recent visit to the Lyautey's estate at Thorey noticed a hugely attractive tree and asked the Guide about it.
Brimming with pride, the Guide said..."Sir...this is a Cooper Beech Tree and is more than 100 years old. It was planted by Marshall Lyautey who was a General in Napoleon's army"
The guide continued "General Lyautey used to love GREENERY and possessed an huge garden with variety of trees. One day he and his gardener were looking over the Estate and the Gaint Trees planted there from all over the World.
Lyautey said to the Gardener "I do not see Copper Beech Tree".
The Gardener signed and said "It is a slow growing tree and takes more than 100 years to reach maturity. Hence didn't plant".
The Marshall replied "There is no time to lose...Plant it this afternoon" !!!!
Just imagine the far farsightedness of the Marshall.
Whoever plants the Copper Beech Tree will never see it fully grown and thus you need REAL LONG TERM VISION to plant it.
Now, even after planting, after you, someone should take it forward, nurture with patience, love and care and make sure it actually grows properly.
Besides, the tree during its growth stage will definitely face huge challenges in terms of Cyclones, Floods, Famine, Pest, all of which will play their part in blocking the growth.
But, TRUE tree lovers will go ahead and plant it.
These trees when fully grown reach heights in the range of 65-110 feet and live for 200 years plus sometimes as long as 400 years.
The tree is truly huge and requires about 5-6 adults holding hands to ring its trunk.
It takes GUTS/COURAGE and real long term vision to plant a tree that takes 150 years to mature.
