I have observed many trees like neem, mango, eucalyptus, banyan, pine etc.
Recently I saw a very amazing tree.
At first it just looked like an ordinary mango tree. But on closer inspection I found that eucalyptus branches were coming out of its branches.
I have seen banyan trees and strangler figs growing around tree like in the images below:
But this amazed me a lot:
I searched the internet and found about Inosculation:
But I was unable to find anything that I saw near my home.
This is a mango tree on the outside but inside it is growing a eucalyptus tree.
What I saw defies logic . Where the original branches have broken down, eucalyptus branches have come out. There the branches of eucalyptus are coming out randomly also.
I am not sure where it has grown inside the tree. It is also not clear if the eucalyptus tree grew when the other tree was alive or it grew after it died. Mybe the other tree is also alive but is without leaves.
How can I know if the eucalyptus tree is working as a Parasite?
What can I do to know/ find out more about this phenomenon?
I am wondering if anyone else has seen such a phenomenon involving a Eucalyptus or any other tree. Kindly reply with a photograph and location. Also if you have seen other such trees, kindly share pictures.
