The boogey man in the form of a tree#TreeSquare!

Tree Square – Day #26

After the Black Summer bushfires of 2019/2020 the regrowth on the trees was interesting to say the least.

This one caught my attention as it looked like a boogey man/monster. Can you see it?

Or does it look like an angel to you?

I was interested to learn that this type of regrowth is called epicormic. I just call them fuzzy trees!

Epicormic buds lie dormant beneath the bark, their growth suppressed by hormones from active shoots higher up the plant. Under certain conditions, they develop into active shoots, such as when damage occurs to higher parts of the plant, or light levels are increased following removal of nearby plants.

This was just some of the devastation caused by the bushfires in our area.

It still looks like a scene from a disaster movie in places, all these years/months later, but in many places the trees are regrowing.

I feel for those in Canada and US going through the fires at the moment.

Becky’s square theme for July is Trees – it’s a monthly challenge where she posts a square photo of a tree (in some form) every day and she invites us all to join in, either daily or spasmodically as the whim takes us! It’s great seeing everyone’s posts from around the world.

It’s nearly the end of the month of trees! Let me know if you see a monster or an angel in this tree.

PS: A brief apology (#sorrynotsorry) to some readers who may get tired of my extra posts and my photos of trees – but it’s a warm wintry welcome to my world! I have a lot of trees around my place so this is something I’m enjoying!

  1. To me, Deb, it looked like an angry individual striding forwards at first… and then you mentioned the angel, and now I see a figure taking to the skies!
    Nice to see life coming back after the fires. 🙂
