As you make your way through the forest, you might also spot nearly perfect rows of trees. Neither man-made nor intended, this design occurs when a tree falls down and begins to decompose. Seeds from other trees and plants fill the decomposing trunk and are provided an abundance of nutrients. Over time they grow along the trunk until it has completely disintegrated, with the end result displaying a straight line of forest vegetation.
