Stumbled upon some property and decided to chalk it. Any idea what this means? This is my only place for any guidance. Thanks

Interesting trunk, lots going on.
Looks like a Beech tree with numerous baggings.
The tree is easy to carve in initials as the surface is smooth and soft.

You can also estimate the age of a beech tree by measuring the circumference of the tree at chest height. This is usually done in inches. Divide the number by 3.14 to get its diameter and then multiply by six. You’ll get a rough estimate of the tree’s age with this technique.

Thank you all! I thought it was pretty cool myself. I was wondering if anyone could decode it in some way. I will def. be back to estimate the age of the tree using the method you gave me pepperj. Thanks!

I think I’ve made the top out at
TZTEVE~ then some weird snake looking symbol or a 2, then 18

For the bottom I’ve got-
QPAZE and either an L or a C
Right below that I’m seeing
H•R
AS.A(I think) then R


The weird thing is, the tail on the R is extended out, almost like it’s directional.

I am open to any thoughts. It’s always good to hear from someone else’s perspective.
There are a few symbols Im just not able to make out yet.

When you go back start paying closer attention to your surroundings about 250 yards before you get there. Locate your cardinal directions at each marked tree or symbol you find and start writing things down for future reference. Walk as far as you can see from the tree in each cardinal direction. Make yourself a simple map of the area and marked trees that include trails hills rock formations and waterways that you can see from where you are standing. Start talking to like-minded people and learn everything you can. Good Luck! https://www.treasurenet.com/threads/old-tree-carvings-markers-codes-kgc.669107/
