Truffula tree

Every day on my way to and from work, I walk by this truffula tree.

Here's hoping nobody decides they 
need a thneed. 


  1. You had me goin' for a second---thinking,  wow!  so there really is a truffula tree?  I even thought it looked a lot like a japanese maple and wondered if it was related. Until I scrolled down, that is.  Clever blogger.

  2. Talk about someone who is alert when they walk.  Nice job.

  3. What a nice thing to pass on the way to work!

  4. A beautiful tree to cheer you on your way. :-)  But never realized that the truffula tree bore such a resemblance to...a Japanese maple?

  5. My 7 year old grandson loves the lorax. And told me the trees were real. So I said we would look it up. I want to say thanks for posting this picture it made him so happy. They need to believe n some magic as long as they can. So thank you again!

  6. After the movie came out this old post started getting a lot of hits, with a lot of people looking for "real truffula tree." I've been wondering how disappointed these visitors are when they land here, so it's nice to get your message!

  7. wow amazing!

    close enough to chop it down!
    this is it!

    my thneeds!
