 Lava Tree Mould - John Seach

A lava tree mould is formed when lava surrounds a tree and forms a cast. The tree burns and leaves a hollow. The inner wall of the mould can often preserve the markings on the bark. Lava tree moulds may project up to 8 metres above the lava surface. These are called lava trees. A lava tree mould may form around fallen tree trunks and limbs.
