Nature is busy—over time and untended, stone walls revert to a playful splay of rock, more closely resembling the earlier tossed walls or rock piles. Stone walls provide a safe haven for woodland animals, keep the farmer’s stock from straying, and even act as an ecological barrier to the intrusion of plant species.
