Can anyone tell us what kind of animal can do this to the bark of a tree?


In Königsheide, Berlin, March 2010

 


Near Naturpark Dahme-Heideseen, Brandenburg, April 2010

The trunk had been completely decorticated from just above the roots up to ca. 130 cm / 4 feet from the ground. There were also some scratches and holes. The second photo is a close-up of one of those holes.

In the woods around here live wild boars, but I don’t think they can reach such heights with their tusks or their claws. I’m wondering if this could be the work of a bear… actually, it’s pretty unlikely that bears dwell in this area. Maybe a lynx or a fox? Foxes do live in and around Berlin. I read on the German Wikipedia that hares and red deer can do this to a tree when put under pressure by hunters and trekkers. Or do you think it’s human doing?


Rätselhafte Schälung in Berlin/Brandenburg

Hat jemand eine Ahnung, was für ein Tier Bäume so schälen kann? Die Rinde wurde rings um den Stamm vollständig entfernt. Es gibt auch welche Kratzer und kleine Löcher (s. Foto 2). Soweit wir wissen, leben hier im Berliner Stadtraum und Umland nur Wildschweine, Hirsche und Füchse. Sind vielleicht auch Luchse unterwegs? Gestresste Feldhasen oder beunruhigte Wildkaninchen? Um eine Korkernte kann es sich wohl nicht handeln, aber vielleicht waren es doch Menschen, die es getan haben, keine Ahnung warum.

 

Alberi misteriosamente decorticati a Berlino e dintorni

Chi scorteccia gli alberi in questo modo? La lince, il cinghiale, la volpe? Un cervo, una lepre o un coniglio stressati dalla presenza di cacciatori o escursionisti? O secondo voi è più probabilmente opera dell’uomo?
