The big question

I vårt rekreasjonsområde ‘Kjekstadmarka’ er det store områder med flat granitt dekket av et tynt moselag. Og der vokser det store furutrær som tilsynelatende har stått der i en liten evighet.
Så hvordan greier de å stå oppreist
når vinden uler gjennom trekronene, og hvor henter de næringen fraDenne er dessuten truffet av lynet for mange år siden –

In our recreational grounds – ‘Kjekstadmarka’, there  are wide areas with flat granite only covered by a thin layer ( app. 2 inches) of moss. (Like here) And in the very same area we might find a lot of old pine trees, seemingly grown there for decades? So how do they succeed keeping themselves upright when the wind comes howling through their branches?  And from where do they get their nutrition? This one was even hit by a lightning a few years back!
