Cornus sanguinea

The wood chips (from spruce) were deposited there by some forest rangers.
The tree (or bush, respectively) is Cornus sanguinea.
The leaves are not birch leaves but rotten leaves from Cornus sanguinea
and there are some other leaves from Alnus incana.

the observer is saying that the wood chips are from spruce, whatever was planted in the bed the chips were used in.

Are those birch tree leaves?

In the image with the mushrooms adorning the base of the tree trunk? That particular trunk does not look like a Norway Spruce. But it is hard to tell what it may be with the lighting. Thanks for the excellent images!
