grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

I wonder why the tree is doing this rather than concentrating its energy in the main trunk

@grouser: Probably it is supposed to be this way with some trees. It is the Leaf of this tree( a mature leaf) that we soak and cure and dry and paint on it.

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

That is so interesting. Did the leaves sprout from the roots? They could all become trees and then there would be a forest.

16 Jul 2016 11:34pm

@Elaine Hancock: Yes..they are from the roots :))I wonder how this will look after a few years !
