Did Mother Nature cut down all those trees? I wondered why people would cut down trees in such a forest, but maybe it was to allow growth of the young trees and other plants. I would call it "New Growth". It's beautiful despite all the stumps.
Well, this area is part of a periodical lake and can be under water after longer time of heavy rain. Nature has to regenerate herself frequently here but does a good job in taking lost terrain back. Sometimes stone avalanches destroy part of the woods too but it is not cultivated by humans.
