This is not a tree I'd like to brush past while wearing my expensive rain gear:

Crazy gum near the Colo. Like a lava flow down over the rocks. Had lost its central leader but still going strong!

Note the new growth at the top.
This old fella has survived floods, storms, wind, lightning and who knows what else. On the banks of the 'bidgee.

Spotted some cool Apple Gums around Berowra/Creek but unable to photograph. I like how the bend and melt and keep growing over rocks!

This tree is suspended in fresh air above the path that runs between Echo Point and the Three Sisters.

This sort of thing is quite common in rainforest. Seed settles on a piece of falling timber that is decaying, it sprouts and grows as the wood rots away; hence you get the "stiltwalker" effect with the trunk starting well above ground level.

Yes. Curious thing here was that the tree fern was very much alive.
But I can imagine the trunk of the fern provided a lovely moist friable setting for roots - a living mulch.
