    The photos are great. Thanks. A bit of a damp blanket though- I was taught that trees do not grow upwards, but out. So, a barbed wire fence that is stapled to the tree remains the same height from the ground, but slowly is swallowed up, disappearing in to the trunk over time, but never getting higher from the ground. So, I suspect these helmets and such were on the surface and someone over time placed them there.

    But, my degrees are history, teaching and theology, so I could be rather poorly informed on tree growth!

    Amazing stuff!!

    The trees over there are quite amazing ~ I have seen a picture of a tree in Australia that 'devoured' a 44 gallon drum but nothing quite like these ones ~
