Ted talks aerial roots

On a visit to Rickerby Park in Carlisle, Cumbria, Ted finds an amazing beech tree. Half the tree has split away and disappeared leaving the exposed cavity that was full of aerial roots. It shows how greedy trees are to capitalise on the decay… they want the minerals and nutrients for themselves rather than letting it recycle into the ground where other organisms might outcompete them.
