Big day yesterday. 15 months ago i wrapped 4 trees in a length of unbleached calico and left them to experience a full cycle of seasons.
This is the Arbutus.
Here are the 2 cloths washed and ironed.
The Arbutus cloth on the left has much more staining but is rotten in more places than the Douglas-fir cloth on the right.
Arbutus cloth has circles of black staining in lines following the creases of the cloth.
Douglas-fir cloth is grey with all over staining and has green moss stains. The staining marks are more flowing.
