Discovery walk

Once we had completed the tree top walk we continued with a discovery walk amongst the trees. The trees are tingle trees which are very tall but very shallow rooted. Many of the trees have huge splits in the trunks which are caused by insects, rodents, fires and the like. The trees continue t grow although they have these hollow trunks until their shallow roots are disturbed when they topple. This photo gives an idea of the hollow trunks.
