Dead trees on Ramailau

There are dead trees all over the place near the top on Mt. Ramailau. They have been ringed around the trunk with a deep groove.

That is done sometimes to get the timber to dry in a straight shape before the trees are felled.

They must have been part of a long ago logging operation that ended for some reason and left the trees standing in the wind.

It looks like they were abandoned over a hundred years ago because they are weathered and almost seem petrified.

hatobulico_034Maybe they are remnants of an old sandalwood logging operation that went bust. It is kind of a mystery.

If anyone knows something about this, I would be interested in hearing about it.

Thanks. Comments below
