I was involved with a large job at work recently which involved removing a few large Beech trees that had quite alot of Ganoderma fungus.
Because of the extent of the fungus and their location next to a footpath they were a risk so were removed and left at 8m for monoliths encouraging wildlife.
One of the large pieces was to be made into a rustic bench, this is what I did.
Elizabeth seems to enjoy it. Hopefully it will still be there for years to come for her and everyone else who passes to enjoy.
