February 2015 - A tree wound on a yellow birch tree along the Mt Tecumseh Trail in New Hampshire. Proper trail blaze removal protocol was not used when a painted trail marker (blaze) was removed from this tree, and this is the ending result. The blaze was painted on the tree in 2011, and then improperly removed from the tree in the spring of 2012. The bark, where the blaze was, was cut and peeled away creating a tree wound.
