6B, 4B, maybe B

Which came first? The fracture, or the amputation?

(I'm still behind on re-listening to The Isle, but I'll get to it!)

I'm thinking the fracture came first, but while it was still standing. I'm thinking it lost its top. Yes, definitely the fracture, because it's quite decayed at the fractured end, and since it's a douglas fir (at least that's a pretty good guess from the shape of the trunk) it would take loooooong to decay.

But wait. It could have fractured and *fallen* from that end, after which time (a long time lying down) it was then cut...oh shoot, I don't know.
