Hackberry Auto House

Another testament to the strength and perseverance of trees.

This is a Japanese hackberry tree, which sprouted from a seed dropped in a junkyard by a bird, and after 25 years, has managed to lift a car in the air.

Various other parts are arrayed around the trunk as branches of the tree grew through holes in old car doors, lifting those as well.

“Workers at the junkyard have built a small fence around the tree, and are protecting it as it continues to grow,” says James of Japan Probe. (via boingboing)
