Overhead view into decayed tree stump found at Cascades Conservation Area.
I love what I feel is the indescribable bond Mother Nature has with Earth.
This aged tree stump is beautiful in its own way. Its wood has been stained green over time by moss, and the trunk’s core is all but gone, etc.
Even after man has cut down a tree, nature still has a natural process for its remaining life cycle, with its roots still deeply embedded in the earth. This process can last more than a decade as the tree stump and its root structure decays, nurturing new life such as insects and foliage.
