We had a tree fall last week. In the Wet season, borers, termites and other wood eaters wreak havoc on some trees. This Bloodwood was rotting inside the base. On the outside, you wouldn’t notice. The bark and first few centimetres into the timber isn’t affected. However, internally it is dying. Once the timber inside has rotted and weakened, the tree has no core strength and eventually falls.
Norm and the dogs had a bit of a wander over the fallen giant, while I took a few photos.
This one is close to where the other tree fell. It is showing signs of dying soon.
