She became so fond of this tree she gave it a name (Isabella–why, you’d have to ask her; and she would likely say “it just looked like an Isabella). And she gave it (‘scuse me, HER) a face.
So we’ll pass on, Isabella’s face will persist. And centuries hence, an entire folk explanation will spring up for the discovery of a woodlands race that worshipped trees on a steep hillside overlooking what one man long ago called Nameless Creek. What must they have been like, they’ll wonder.

I think they’ll know you had a good sense of humor…..LOL
That reminds me of the tree-people in the Lord of the Rings movies.
Isabella has a distant NC relative in our neighborhood. As kenju comments above, I think they are both Ents.
we drove by a house that had these faces on a couple of trees, and my son believes they are ents. so when we buy a house, i told my husband that i’m going to buy these faces adn find an old tree to put them on, so he will have his own ents….
At my parents enchanted forest in the mountains of WNC there is a tree named Trunk Daddy.
