What is this?!? It’s driving me crazy!

Strange Cuts in TreeWhen hiking I frequently encounter trees that are cut out like the one in my picture. Why do people chop these rectangular holes? What are they looking for? This one was encountered in northern California, but I’ve also seen it in northern Oregon. In fact, there I saw a guy walking back with his supplies from having done this, but didn’t ask him what he was collecting.

Please tell me in the comments, it’s driving me crazy!
