Southern Indiana can have some violent weather, and the forests are often littered with branches and fallen trees.
Most people think that they just lie there and rot away, providing nutrients for the Mycelium.
But healthy forests have special places, hidden away from the trails, where the fallen trees are being cared for.
There are various forms of burial rites, including a careful shrouding with dried grasses.
If you stumble across a place like this, spend a few minutes and say your prayer.
