A quick visit to the forest

Jen and I decided to take some time out on the weekend and revisit some friends. We travelled up to Mt Field National Park where we took the short walk to see Russell Falls. Along the walk we spotted the familiar sight of a Eucalyptus regnans on its side over a path, the tree had been cut to allow people through. 

Always a good opportunity to check out the growth rings we both curious to find a distinct black layering in the rings. A quick call to Dr Sam Wood and he told us that it can be related to stress.
