Have you seen this before?

Tree's growing out of dead trees? A first for me, as well as a nice chest/waist high rub line find. 8-)

I can't say I have.

I have seen that numerous times from trees that I have hinge cut. As Zap said the tree may still be alive.

I'll have to take a closer look when I go back to see if the tree is still alive.

Is it just me, or do the two trees (fallen and rubbed tree) look like two different tree species?

Agree on that, but not dead falls.

I wish I could find a post I made about this a while back. But anyways, I found a large deadfall about 2' diameter. It had full grown trees growing from it. That each were 30 or 4o feet tall.

Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Was this also in a swamp/marsh area?

Ive seen this several times as well.

Seen a lot of BIG trees growing on boulders and rocks too.

As for the ones growing on the dead tree, if you think about it it is the perfect location for plant to grow. Seeds fall into the crevices in the bark, it withholds moisture, gets plenty of sunlight.

If the tree decomposes slowly I supose it would be possible for it to make its way to the earth floor and survive? It would be cool to keep an eye on if its local.

what kind of trees are growing from the truck of the fallen tree? the trees growing from the fallen tree are probably the result of another tree dropping it's suckers. poplar tree are known to do this.

Wonder if the understory has to be very wet for this to take place?
