A Hollow Tree

During our visit to Silvassa we came across this Adina Cordifolia tree which was Hollow. These cavities are the results of physiological stress from natural forces, which may be wind, fire, heat, lightening, rain, attack of insects, bacteria or fungi. And these kinds of hollow trees also act as habitat for number of vertebrate and invertebrate animals. Luckily there were no such animals in this tree, might be because of the visitors, who keep the tree engaged for photography....

Even with such big cavity, the tree was alive.

  16. Interesting... never seen such a thing before.
    I'm guessing it's some wood-eating insects' work...
