There’s a maple tree shaped like a giant hand twisting upwards out of the ground. A sapling of a different species, about 4 feet tall, has taken root in the collection of soil and tree debris gathered in the Maple tree’s ‘palm.’ That’s not how it’s supposed to work. What will happen to the trees when the little one gets bigger? Will the hand tree give way, taking the younger one down with it? Or will the younger one grow weak and flimsy, and falter, having been hoisted out of harm’s way all it’s life?
