NASA Mars photo reveals strange object

According to an article written August 5, 2008, a piece of "timber" has been found in one of the NASA photos, taken by the Mar´s Rover "Opportunity"You can read the full article here: "NASA Mars photo leaked - wood found on mars!"Where would a piece of timber (if that is what it is) come from, if there are no trees on Mars? The author of the article says "There are vast forests on Mars, ones that are kept from the public. This piece of wood looks like it floated to its present location, being partially sunk in the soil."Whilst conditions on Mars are different to that on Earth (atmosphere and temperatures), it seems unlikely that a piece of wood could survive any great length of time, a point the author makes "This flood had to have happened within the past thirty or forty years because the wood is intact, though this is judging the rate of decay by Earth standards. Some may say that Mars did have water on it long ago and that it even had an atmosphere, which is true, but a piece of timber isn´t going to survive for thousands of years."
