Re: Hole in tree trunk

Very neat... I've seen this time of stuff starting, but never officially a hole from one side to the other. Very cool!

Re: Hole in tree trunk

Do you it grew around think it grew around a fallen tree that has since rotted away? May be some other way to explain it. Any other guesses?

Re: Hole in tree trunk

I would think maybe something like a buck rub... something that caused it to die and then... oh heck I have no idea.

Re: Hole in tree trunk

I worked in the woods for close to 20 yrs and have seen this before.. Most of the time when something like this happens its from the tree starting to grow around an old stump then the stump rots away and leaves the hole. Like I said though most of the time not always, Just my thoughts and observations.
