Face carving found in Canadian tree

No it’s not Treebeard, but the carving of a face has been found by loggers in the Toba Inlet region of British Colombia, Canada. The arborglyph has been staring down the river for the past 200 years.

The area of the discovery is part of the Klahoose First Nation, a group of people who lived in this area. The tree is situated quite high up in the forest, in a difficult to access area.


The tree was removed from the area and placed somewhere else where conservation and cultural analysis can be done. Archaeologists were worried that the removal of trees around this one is would expose it to the elements.

To be honest, I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that they removed the tree, or that they only found it cause they cut down all the rest. Just my opinion.

Anywho, find out more about it on Archaeology News Network
