For the love of trees.
This blog is long forgotten.
George Orwell rhapsodizes about the peepul tree in Burmese Days. .....Here a peepul tree grew, a great buttressed thing, six feet thick, woven of innumerable strands of wood, like a wooden cable twisted by a giant.
Hi there !I have become passionate with peepal trees, or Ficus religiosa, and I am always looking at ways to increase my knowledge of this fantastic tree !It seems to me that the roots of peepal trees don't like to stay inside water. But I may be wrong, so I'd like your feedback on this point.:- How high is the tree from water level ?- are the roots directly in the water ? I am asking you, because I am not sure I see clearly on your pictures. It seems like the tree is on higher ground, and I am not sure about the picture with the roots, if the roots are in the water or not.Thanks a lot !
@Goustan BODIN Thankyou for the comment. As you obviously can see, some roots are already in water but its also a fact that they can survive on less water as well.
