I have seen it done well, and also poorly. I suppose it depends on how it is done.

I've seen some very very good examples of this done with spruce forests by some Japanese masters. Although never with a fallen tree. That would seem difficult.

Goshin has a dead trunk or two doesn't it? Can't tell in the pics of those long dead trunks have any live veins or not... none are fallen obviously, just saying that is a rather famous example..

Fallen is difficult because of the line it creates.

Makes perfect sense but kills flow...

I wonder if rotten and opened up to break up that line would work....
Though hard to maintain.

Do it!
