My second thought: why is the stump a different shade of green? Typically, a bocage trunk, if green, uses the same green as is used elsewhere on the base or on the figure itself.
So in my mind things didn't quite add up.
John's description said nothing about bocage loss or breakage....and John is totally honest on these issues. So I looked at the picture of the back of the figure. Here it is, also from John's site.
