POTD: Bare Tree #18

Bare Tree #18
Silver Falls State Park, Oregon
2018

Imagine what this tree with its roots embracing the old-growth tree stump on which it was growing look like once the stump completely rots away. In my mind I see a tree standing on its tip-toes.

    1. I’ve seen nursery trees before but they were always downed trees, not stumps. In this particular forest there were quite a number of small trees perched on stumps with their roots exposed like this one. They look ready to walk away; perhaps that’s how Ents are formed.
