Apple Language

This is in my files in portrait orientation but it has uploaded here in this form.

 

This was an apple tree in my yard before being broken and removed after Hurricane Dorian.

It had been damaged beforehand by some under-bark insect or larvae.

such unusual markings
Care MacADNski: Very interesting patterns.
You beat me to it Care ! I had some shots of tree trunks like this, they do make attractive patterns.
Care MacADNski: I pondered keeping these in long trunks and decided not to.
They are really beautiful patterns!
I remember when Frank encountered a fallen Ponderosa with wormy patterns... he remarked at how amazing it was - but kill-joy me, had to say "Well, those are the tacks of the bark beetles that killed it..."
Care MacADNski: It was the only one of my ancient apple trees that was infected thankfully.
Les parcours de ces insectes ont fait de beaux dessins.
Care MacADNski: Exactly. I sort of wish I'd kept them....

This is very dramatic and somewhat artistic too
Care MacADNski: I knew this tree was on it's last leg.
Artistic result of a pest invasion. wonder what it is?
Care MacADNski: A bark beetle. I have seen various ones here over the years but this is the only tree affected.

The ‘thing’ made quite a pretty pattern.
Care MacADNski: A bark beetle was the thing. It's poetry has not been deciphered yet.
Very sad that you've lost the tree but what fascinating patterns nature has made.
Care MacADNski: My house is over 200 years old so the trees are considered ancient. I have lost many over my 35+ years here.
