Dead Trees Come to Life
A tree dies in the forest. Why are dead trees vital for healthy woodland habitat and ecosystem health? A standing dead tree transforms into a web of life. A standing dead tree becomes a Den Tree that is home to birds, animals, bugs, fungi, slime molds, worms, spiders, moss, lichens and green plants. When the tree eventually falls, nature's cycle continues to create new life from old for hundreds of years. You'll dig into the world of a fallen log and discover the amazing community inside.
