I am lead to believe that they are regarded as not giving anyone super human powers, more like super human bowels, or the "munchies" in laymans talk. I ususaully leave things horticutural to others.
Great shot KC. I have seen only one other tree that looked like, this and that was South Perth Zoo. I am not sure why I didn't upload it, but I think yours is more dramatic.Y*, Kind REgards, David
I took it purely on the basis that I seldom think about whats going on underground with a tree. It's easy to see their splendour throught the seasons, but nothing else is considered. Thanks once again for the appreciation David.
That's getting to the root of things eh!
Nicely spotted! Liked
Season's Greetings, GG
Well GG, you have to root these kind of pictures out...................Phew, what a dreadful pun.
lol both of ours are positively punishable puns... but ahhh who's gunna tell on us?
I doubt if the tree will, but you never know.
He could bark it to a treehugger... but then who would believe that person....

Thanks Yves. I always think it fascinating to know there is as much of the tree underground as there is over ground.
I'm a branch tree myself, but I can appreciate a nice set of roots. In this case, very nice!
Hi Ken, I love to see these myself as it gives a grest understading of whats going on underneath a mighty oak. Thanks for the visit.
That reminds me of a London underground map.
I am finding a lot more trees with large sections of their roots systems exposed due to the eccelerated soil erosion, I have taken many photographs for my own group Tree Roots and Lower Trunk tree group. I do not think a lot of people find them of interest, I find them so interesting to photograph with the variation of light and shadow.(Like)
Hi Bob, thanks for the interest. Rarely does anyone consider whats going on underneath when they see a tree blowing in the wind. I find it almost humbling.
Like this root photo, my favorite! Best Wishes from Vilnius, Lithuania! G.
Thanks for the visit and the Like. Very kind of you. Greetings from London.
