The stump is over 800 years old.

The brown bale is Spanish Moss and in the next 3 photos is a machinery used to clean it. In the early 1900s it was used commercially in the padding of car seats. In 1939 over 10,000 tons of processed Spanish moss was produced and as an ingredient in the traditional wall covering material Bousillage. Bousillage is a mixture of clay and grass or other fibrous substances used as the in fill between the timbers of a half-timbered building.
