Wood dust, holes. Borers killed this Port Orford Cedar. 1st time I saw this on this species.

Grafted Willow branch. Inosculation.

Interesting natural graft on Willow. I just left it. Interesting. Called Inosculation.

Pruning cut wound enclosing

Pruning cut closer 14 months after the cut. Marked to keep track of future photos.

Discoloration of Oregon oak trunk wood

One guess is embedded fire damage. A better guess is old spur spike climbing wounds.

Cable in Cedar trunk

It's better to anchor into a stem than to wrap wire or chain all the way around it.
