Woodland Symmetry

This trunk was thoroughly soaked in the rain and yet the end appears to show dampness making its way in but not having reached the center.  Someone, rather than an animal, has been cutting trees along the path.  Even trees started by beavers seem to be felled shortly after.  Some are left in place but some appear to disappear, and I’m not sure the beavers are taking them.

Tree trunk core is dry.
