Good morning light. Thousands of acorn holes!
This "acorn pantry" tree is an old growth Ponderosa Pine in the park that has thousands of holes drilled in the bark from base to top by Acorn Woodpeckers to store their acorns. The tree is over 4 feet diameter at the base,is still alive and well, and is a unique natural wonder in the great outdoors!
