The Living Dead Tree

In my Ecology class we learned about invader species and how they effect the natural life in an area. I found a perfect example of this when we were out one day. This tree was killed off by an invader species (the inside is all rotting wood) but it was still used as a support for this species until the weight over whelmed the rotting tree and an entire limb collapsed, Exposing the truth.
