HELP Trees and Stain

I am trying my hand at restoring this photo for a friend. Just cropped the part most in need of help.

Who would think trees would be so hard to do...cloneing just makes them look fuzzy. Also there is a big round stain . Can someone help with this?

Then could you post each step? Sometimes I do not know where a function is so if you could add that , it would make learning so much easier.

Thanks to anyone willing to help me learn . Neb
PS: If this is asking too much ..just let meknow!!

Maybe someone else can add to this (I can only go by what I see of the crop)-- the picture appears black and white, the stain is brown. Desaturate the photograph and the stain may all but vanish.

Hi Neb,

Since picture is B&W, selected blue channel (this had least staining or other marks) then converted it to Greyscale.

Sure Craig:
It is a mess for sure! Looks like some little one got a hold of it and scribbled blue marker on it. Besides all the marks and folds. Here it is. Neb

Hi Neb,

Have sent you a PM to explain how I got the image I posted.

Sorry I wasn't online to clarify things.

If there's anything else you need to know, or the explanation is not clear to you in any way, post here and I'll try to clarify things.

Good luck with your picture, have fun.

Gary.

Had a quick play with the full picture. Selected Blue Channel as before. The Stain shows as a darkening of the picture, so did a loose selection round it, then copied and pasted to a new layer. Did a levels adj to even things out.
