New birch log

As the original birch log across the original square metre is now rapidly vanishing back into the soil having been regularly attacked by insects and woodpeckers, I decided to bring a new birch log that has been lying down the garden for a year or so and place it, as aesthetically as possible, in Medlar Wood. It was quite large and heavy so took some lugging into position. With some rough maths I calculated that its surface area is around 1.3 metres, larger than the area of the original square. I reflected on how much extra surface is created by dead wood, fallen trees etc. lying on a forest floor.
