Bare Trees is the sixth studio album by British rock band Fleetwood Mac, released in 1972. This is their last album to feature Danny Kirwan, who was fired during the album's supporting tour. In the wake of the band's success in the mid-70s, Bare Trees earned Gold status in 1976.
The album features the original version of "Sentimental Lady", which was later re-recorded by its composer Bob Welch (with Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, and Lindsey Buckingham backing him) for his solo album French Kiss. "Spare Me a Little of Your Love" became a staple of the band's live act from 1972–77.
"Trinity", a Danny Kirwan song, was an outtake from the album that was subsequently released in 1992 on the 25 Years - The Chain box set.
The lyrics for Kirwan's composition "Dust" were taken from a poem by Rupert Brooke.
"Thoughts on a Grey Day" is a poem read by an elderly woman, Mrs Scarrott, who lived near the band's communal home in southern England.
