Disease leaves a tree-shaped mark inside tree

The mark of a diseased tree This is the tree-mendous phenomenon uncovered when a 200-year-old horse chestnut tree was felled.

Tree surgeons were stunned when they found the image of a tiny tree imprinted on a fallen branch.

Experts say the bizarre shape has occurred because the heart wood is riddled with rot, which is why it has been chopped down.
