I last posted about this slow collapse at the beginning of November, 2021.
Here’s a repeat of the last image from that post.
I’m hoping the tree will stay around even after it collapses to serve as a perch for the wading and water birds.
This spring the pond was allowed to dry as part of a vegetation management protocol.
A wider view–I believe those logs are palm tree trunks. They have been laying there, usually submerged, for at least the five years I’ve been going to Donnelley.
Then with the water back in a few weeks later.
