My friends, this tree was not damaged. Sprout on the tree is dead wood

whether I have used the English word “sprout”?

It is well done!
I don’t understand the name “sprout”, though.
Is it the wood inside the scar from a limb removed from the tree?

Thanks friends!

Don, I do not know exactly how the English word called defect of wood, when the wound heals bark on the trunk so that the influx is formed with the open part of the trunk. Relief carving is a layer of dead wood about 4 centimeters

A wonderful way to improve the looks of a wounded tree. It will get more interesting as the bark slowly grows around the carving and people will wonder “how did he do that?” Thank you for sharing.

Do I see a hammock for naps between carving sessions?

Very cool Oleg. I just hope someone doesn’t think it is real and try to kill it.
