10.07.2021 Tree suckers no more

It’s a bit of a mystery what happened to the suckers at the base of this tree.  It was along the Eagle Lake Carriage Path we walked on the 25th. I wouldn’t expect there is a lot of tree “maintenance” happening but it’s possible. So spots look like they were broken away.  Maybe the suckers were eaten by deer when they were still developing and the wounds grew with the tree.

    The suckers remind me of barnacles clinging to a piling.

    The textures on this tree are lovely. I agree with shoreacres, the wounds are reminiscent of barnacles. Nice shot!

    Interesting. There’s a big old Douglas fir on a trail I frequent with a bizarre growth on its bark about 5 ft. up. It looks like an 18″, 3-dimensional star, with five or six points arranged around what must have been a serious wound. Nature!
