Fallen trees – 2

More daily walks in the forest here in Hyväsalmi in Ihamaniemi and more fallen trees. Some of them due to the winds, some of them because the forest nearby has been cut and the protection that once was there has gone, and some of them because of the thin soil.

They reminded me of the thought experiment that is sometime attributed to the philosopher George Berkley: “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”
