  • trunks
  • Finally, the stranglers' scaffoldlike root networks may help support and strengthen the tree trunks they encircle in their deadly embrace. (sciencemag.org)
  • For similar reasons, rowans also germinate in the forks of the trunks of pines and other trees, but in most cases there is insufficient organic matter for these seedlings to grow to more than a metre or two in size. (treesforlife.org.uk)
  • They are completely vegetarian and eat both the lush green parts and the woody stems and trunks of trees, as well as a variety of rushes and sedges. (treesforlife.org.uk)

(tolweb.org)
  • Tinder fungus grows on trees throughout the temperate and boreal regions of the northern hemisphere, and is found in Europe, northern Asia and in North America. (treesforlife.org.uk)
  • It is a bracket fungus, meaning that it grows out of the wood of standing or fallen dead trees , and is also known as the hoof fungus, because of the similarity of its fruiting body to a horse's hoof. (treesforlife.org.uk)
  • Although solitary specimens do occur, the tinder fungus usually produces multiple fruiting bodies on the same tree or log, and adjacent ones sometimes fuse together as they grow. (treesforlife.org.uk)
  • Interestingly enough, if a tree that a tinder fungus is growing on falls down, the fungus will re-orient its direction of growth to account for its changed position, so specimens are sometimes seen with two different patterns of growth in the fruit body, at right angles to each other. (treesforlife.org.uk)
  • Tinder fungus is a heart rot fungus and a parasite of trees that are already weakened, for example by injury or drought. (treesforlife.org.uk)
  • As the fungus spreads, the tree eventually dies and the tinder fungus then becomes saprotrophic, helping with the breakdown of the tough cellulose and lignin in the wood. (treesforlife.org.uk)
  • Tinder fungus fruiting bodies only appear once the tree it is growing on has died. (treesforlife.org.uk)

  • alder
  • In this case, Frankia lives within special nodules on the roots of the alder (another example of endosymbiosis), and absorbs nitrogen from the atmosphere, 'fixing' it in the soil. (treesforlife.org.uk)
  • Exceptions to this do occur, and near Glac Daraich in Glen Affric there is a good example of a rowan which became established about two metres up an alder ( Alnus glutinosa ) and grew into a mature tree, partly embracing the alder, after its roots reached the soil below. (treesforlife.org.uk)

  • Bark is sometimes stripped in order to access the more nutritious inner bark, and in parts of the forest (and even some parks and gardens), a definite 'skirt' can be seen around some trees, where deer have browsed the lower branches. (treesforlife.org.uk)
  • Where regrowth is susceptible to deer damage it can be protected using tree guards or fencing. (treesforlife.org.uk)
  • occurs
