My Favorite Tree Roots

A tree root usually grows underground, secures the plant, absorbs minerals and water from the soil, and stores food. However, some tree roots grow above the ground in humid climates or when weather erodes the soil. An example is my favorite tree root, the Moreton Bay Fig in Santa Barbara, California. I liken its massive roots to dinosaur feet.
