A re-birth

Hiking near Ken Lockwood Gorge in Hunterdon County, N.J., I found this piece of tulip poplar that had been bent over significantly by a small tree that had fallen across it.

Wind action on the two trees caused continual diagonal abrasion. Simultaneously, the poplar’s attempts to grow and heal itself produced both the deep gouge and flared sides. Water intrusion into the abrasion eventually killed the tree, but allowed it a most beautiful reincarnation.
