Fall and rise again….

Here’s an interesting tree, photographed in the woodland at Bramcote Hills Park….

It’s a fallen Sweet Chestnut (Castanea sativa) that is very much alive; enough roots have remained anchored into the soil so that a side branch from the original trunk has been able to grow vertically to form a new trunk.  There’s no reason why this downed tree should not continue to thrive for many years to come.
