When a tree falls in the forest, what is its fate? And what happens to the animals who've depended on it?Through the simple yet dramatic story of a tree's life, death, and decomposition, A Log's Life illustrates the interdependence of living creatures. A great oak tree provides food or shelter for squirrels, a porcupine, carpenter ants, fungi, slugs, and more. When lightning strikes, it topples to become a giant log. Now spiders, millipedes, termites, a porcupine, salamanders, etc. move in. Over time the log decays and collapses, driving the animals to find new homes. Moss carpets the log, breaking it down further; it becomes dirt. Then an acorn fails in the rich earth, and grows into another great oak tree, which is eventually struck down in another storm to become another giant log.
