This sound recording is of branches snapping as they are being bent and broken by a person's hands. The branches were small, dry, and brittle as they had already fallen from the nearby trees on the side of Furman University's library. Recorded on Han4 Pro Zoom.

Dried Oak tree leaves being crunched by a light foot in Richmond Virginia on one of the old slave trails. Captured during late Fall season. Recorded by a Zoom H1 audio recording device.
