Root Skirt (ThursdayTreeLove)

Sunderbans, Mangroves, stilt roots

This tree seems to  be wearing a skirt!! That is what the magnificent stilt roots of this mangrove tree reminded me of!! 

What do you think? 

This is a mangrove species that I saw in the Sunderbans. They are adapted to grow in saline and brackish water and have special roots for support and to breathe. 

I am joining Parul’s #ThursdayTreeLove33. Head over to see some wonderful trees from around the world.

  1. We have mangrove trees in the United States, in a state called Florida. I lived there for two years and just visited there in January – and I can't remember if I saw any of these trees. I'll know what to look out for, now – it really does look like a tree skirt.
