Several of the lower brackets had holes (up to 0.3 cm) underneath, but I didn’t see any insects… I’ll look into it. We cut the top of the tree (Turkey Oak, I’ll have to figure out it’s real name) down several years ago, and I’ve enjoyed watching it weather. It’s in my horse pen, and the stump is their favorite place scratch themselves.
