The Woodland.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Hayley Brown 10D 565 Words The Woodland The leaf-choked ground was soft under the feet, the slender trees dispersed strategically, masking the interior wood from the rest of the world. It was a haven here, quiet and detached from the thundering roar of the city only two miles away. Autumn brought a pretty time for the wood. Beautiful colours of red, brown, orange and yellow covered the floor, turning the scene into an exquisite picture. Excited groups of children ran gleefully, searching high and low for conkers, shiny and brown, lying guarded by their spiked shells. The wind taunted the trees and they swayed indignantly.

    This will remove any insulation and moisture removing abilities. The water passing the slope may be stored in cracks, caused by chemical or exfoliation weathering. This water freezes during the diurnal temperature variation, and expands by 10%. This widens the crack.
