I would’ve made such an awesome Keebler elf. I love baking cookies and I love eating them even more, which I don’t even think is a prerequisite for being a Keebler elf, but it just goes to show that I’m willing to go the extra mile. On top of that, I think that living in a tree sounds like about the best thing that could happen to a person, whereas a lot of people would probably consider that a step down from a brick-and-mortar building. Pish, I say. Trees rule.
I mean, doesn’t this gorgeous old southern live oak in South Carolina look like it would be a nice place to set up house? This particular one is known as the Angel Oak Tree and it’s believed to be somewhere between 400 and 500 years old, making it one of the oldest oaks around. Those insanely big branches look like the most inviting and protective arms imaginable. I’m quite sure they would never let anything bad happen to its elf inhabitants. Filling out my change-of-address cards now…
Let’s head to Hong Kong next, to take a look at the storied Kam Tin Tree House. This huge banyan grew to swallow up a stone building that was abandoned around 1666, which means that the tree is now close to 350 years old. Its canopy spreads an impressive 125′ wide, greater than the distance from my home to the corner store, where they sell Keebler cookies. I would never have to walk that far for a cookie ever again. Sweet home Alabama, that would be awesome.
Who could resist the colorful allure of a rainbow eucalyptus? Certainly not this elf. These trees can reach 200′ feet in height, with trunks that are 6′ wide, offering plenty of space to move around. Plus, no more stressing on whether or not the color scheme in your living room goes with the dining room. Decorating is done and done.
This weeping fig tree looks like it was made for moving into. Ficus really do just seem to have a way, don’t they?
Cherry blossom trees in a foggy mist. I don’t even care that they don’t bloom for long or that they’ll be bare all winter long. This kind of show is totally worth waiting for throughout the rest of the year.
An enormous California Redwood that’s ready for move-in. Only thing is, I’m far too lazy to climb any spiral staircase that would take me to the top of this bad boy. The Keebler elves had an elevator, right? Right?
