07 Jan Tree Roots Are Like People
We like to joke that Tree Roots are like People in two silly ways.
1) Trees will eat and grow as much as possible in the attempt to get as big as possible.
2) Tree Roots are lazy. We always find these knots in the roots because trees like grow where it is easiest to grow. When we expose the roots underground, we alwasy find something different. They will exploit any voided space in the ground to increase their size.
And as a reminder, this is simply an analogy to educate about trees, nothing personal. Hopefully this helps you remember their nature.
