>The Woods In Autumn

>Just some photos, which I will let speak for themselves. Between a lot of work and the construction workers demolishing my terrace (all for the good, but they’ve been drilling and sawing and hammering since June, and now they are working right outside my window. Home feels like being in a terrarium), I don’t have many clear thoughts presenting themselves for blog material.

A favorite tree. The only one of its kind among the others, and the trunk’s color — a greenish bluish gray, probably from some plant life — stands out among them.

    >So the fallen tree seen here on October 25th (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_xfGRFikCYmE/TNxosfopiDI/AAAAAAAABGI/gh8JwYoRci4/s1600/PA251853kl.jpg) ist already removed partly.Your favorite, the beech-tree: It is also called the "forests mother" for its roots plough the soil for other trees. At the moment only few of them can be seen. But due to global warming + moister springs especially leaf trees will gain ground at levels between 500 and 1000 m.a.SL. the change can bee seen very good below the railway tracks between Bretterkeller and Schloss Ambras….and thank you very much for your commendations!

    >Paschberg: The fallen tree (behind the Schalenstein) is also a beech, no? And have you seen the tree split over the path above the Tummelplatz?http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_82RSn-ioe_A/TM5wdcXt3OI/AAAAAAAABuY/r1xdpt4aKM4/s1600/P1011777.JPG

    >No I haven´t seen this fallen tree, cannot localize this one. I must confess, that during Föhn I usually avoid going into the forest. I ranger adviced me to do so.The former as well as the recent tree are spruces. They are very endangered, because they have no deep roots and the are ill due to the warming climate. And if the wind blows not exactly from the direction it usually blows, the trees are caught at their weak side. So most trees here in the forest don´t fall from the south to the north (as you would expect from the "Föhn") but from the west to the east, north to south a.s.o. – when the Föhn becomes squally (if this is the right word?)
