Did you know that forest owners must remove the beechwood that was cut down in the summer as quickly as possible so that a species of beetle, Morimus funereus, does not grow inside of it? If the owners are not fast enough and these beetles get inside it, the owners must leave the wood in the forest for the offspring to fully develop. Morimus funereus is a protected species of beetle that lays its eggs in dead beech wood, which represents a great place for laying its offspring.
