I love finding trees that grow around obstacles.
The ones that I find the most are hackberry trees. They are considered “junk” trees – large weeds, a nuisance. Normally they are scraggly bushes, but when you cut them, they sprout out even more branches, like a hydra. Your choice then is to let it grow as is, or to dig it up.
Here is one I found at a Persian restaurant off White Bridge Road in Nashville. The restaurant (Hot Kabobs) is not there anymore, but I bet this tree is. Look how it has grown around the chain link fence.
Here is one at the Mercy Convent in Donelson. There is a back part of the property, next to a farm. This is not part of the normal area for retreats, but I was on a wander. There was a metal wire that was used to show where the property line is, and this tree has grown around it.
Soon it will have totally wrapped around it.
