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.

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.
I am impressed by the tree picture:) looks really like a skirt:):) thanks for sharing!!

Happy to connect with you too @Surbhi 🙂
That is just so cute – a tree in a skirt. It does look like that. Reminds a bit of a scene from Life of Pi.
@Tulika… Thanks 🙂
That is so unique and it sure looks like a skirt of roots. Thank you for sharing. Sunderbans is one place in India that if I get a chance, I would love to go. It reminds me of geography classes and books 🙂
@Parul.. You have to visit the Sunderbans. A totally different region and hats off to the folk who live there… The flora ofcourse is amazing … Thanks 🙂
That tree looks interesting with thin roots and lush green top
Thanks Mahathi! 🙂
