Real tree art print. Tree ring art.
This print shows the crotch section of the tree where the trunk split into three main branches.
Counting the rings on a cross-section of a tree trunk from the center pith to the outer bark will tell you how old the tree is. Each year, a tree grows a new ring. You can see where branches were located when the tree was younger by looking for v-shaped notches in the rings. Uneven rings may indicate when a tree had to bend in one direction to get the most sun.

Here are some interesting facts about the locust tree. The name locust is said to have been given the name Robinia by Jesuit missionaries, who fancied that this was the tree that supported St. John in the wilderness, but it is native only to North America. The locust tree of Spain (Ceratonia siliqua or Carob Tree), which is also native to Syria and the entire Mediterranean basin, is supposed to be the true locust of the New Testament. As a young man, Abraham Lincoln spent much of his time splitting rails and fence posts from black locust logs. Flavonoids in the heartwood allow the wood to last over 100 years in soil. It is one of the heaviest and hardest woods in North America.
Masons have traditionally considered locust trees as symbols of purity and endurance.
Robinia is now a North American genus, but traces of it are found in the Eocene and Miocene rocks of Europe.
