The Mushroom Stump, cut from real logs as part of a forest management, thinning project in northern New England, is a fantastic way to bring a piece of one of nature's most beautiful creations onto the playground.

These Mushroom Stumps vary in diameter and height, so let us know the age of your children. Because they are small, they are easily moved so they can also be used for loose parts, stacking, imaginative play, and amphitheater seating

Because they are natural, Mushroom Stumps will exhibit cracks or splits as they dry out over time, but this will only add to their beauty and teach children about natural processes. It will not reduce the structural integrity of the Mushroom Stumps, and they'll last a long, long time (years and years!) without much sign of wear.

Because bark clings to the trunk differently depending on the seasons throughout the year, sometime being loose, and sometime being tight, we have never been able to guarantee that any of our tree products will come with bark, so we leave it on, but it may fall off.

Note: we include the Mushroom Stump under our Upper Body category because children will carry these stumps from here to there on your playground, and gain plenty of upper body strength as they do!

If you want a great deal on these stumps, save 6%! by buying them in sets of 4. You will certainly use them!
