the beauty of standing deadwood

Recommended Posts

Thought I would share these and hopefully inspire. We are all probably aware of the ecological benefits of standing deadwood. These are micro eco systems in their own right developed over a great period of time. Their complete removal means their destruction. But secondly.....they actually look great too......living sculptures which the likes of landscape artist David Nash (check his wood sculptures out :thumbup:) would be proud of.

 

I'm fully aware that it is only possible to leave dead stands in a minority of instances but hopefully we can all think about the benefits of this practice more!:thumbup1:

As you can see from the last photo's these are all lapsed pollards. Some have collapsed whilst others as you have rightly pointed out have been reduced for safety reasons and also to prevent further collapse.
