Neglected Structures & Overgrown Places #17 — It’s Growing, That Old Timber Stack
27th NOVEMBER 2014

When I first saw this timber stack, it was relatively neat and ordered, like a storage area belonging to someone who keeps bits of timber for a purpose such as for use in a wood-burning stove.
In three months it has deteriorated into a haphazard heap, which this week its owner has crowned with some colourful painted wood. Now I’m thinking, this hoard of timber is a case of “out of sight, out of mind”.
Into which class of person do you fall?
- Do you throw things out unless they currently serve a useful purpose, or might do so in the identifiable future?
- Do you hoard things just in case they come in useful at a later, unspecified date?
- Do you dump stuff, treating it as “out of sight, out of mind”?
