Hi chappy 56
Have a look at Walter pall’s web site you’ll see good examples of dead wood and hollows in deciduous trees. Smile

Very interesting, Andy. The bracket fungus looks like none that we get over here. Ours usually grow in one season and rot away over a couple of years after they have shed spore. This one looks like it keeps on growing, long enough for mosses and lichen to colonise it. If that is the case, perhaps the seedling tree will live for a few more years.

Interesting, it appears to have growth layers, that could possibly be a guide to its age?

Interest piqued, I just googled Polypore it and found "Many of these woody fungi persist for several years, and a new layer of pores is superposed on the previous season's growth."

Thanks that makes it easier "The average life span is five years but some old Ganoderma may reach ten years." from http://www.islandnet.com/~see/naturesong/plants/artfungus.htm

A few more local trees.

A broad leaf grown in the form of informal upright.



this one takes the form of a broom.


The wind swept form.


With nature styling its trees in all forms i guess there will not be a given way to style broad leaves in the future.
