In the vastness of these farmlands stands a certain tree. It’s not much to look and is probably as common as by the well-worked surrounding of prime bottom land on all sides, but this isolated bit greenery is worth mentioning because, year after year, it survives wind gusts and other rough battering. More than defying weather, it also defies our concept of practicality.
Might an argument be made the tree stands beyond Reason?
More than just worth mentioning, it is a landmark.
