Forest Floor Bark-Strength

Walking through the forest on a winter day, Becky noticed holes in the trees from feeding woodpeckers. She grew concerned for the well-being of the trees and was inspired to design patches of “armor” to aid them.

While designing this armor, Becky kept an eye on the trees and came to realize they were healing on their own. Birds would come each day to clean bugs from the holes. Soon the bark began to form rounded edges and over time, the holes closed with new growth.

Known as the Lady of the Woods, the birch is elegant and graceful at first sight but stronger than she appears. The birch is a symbol of courage, strength and regeneration for all.
