trees don't get buried in woodland, if anything some are sitting on a little mound where the roots have grown and pushed soil away.

What is the texture of these shoot, hard or soft?

It's not Dracunculus vulgaris but could be some sort of aroid.

If it was bamboo I would expect to find evidence of old stems cut down. Are there are hard stumpy ends around it?
