Tree eating itself...
Came across this in the woods today. Looks like celtis spp that has grown over a vine on its trunk but the growth is much thicker caliper than the trunk below.
I believe the tree started encapsulating a vine then ended up encapsulating itself and a couple branches.
It is slow around here and it entertained me. If one person is also entertained by this, I will consider it a success.
Feel free to post weird pics of trees doing weird stuff.
Also posted a low quality vid at the bottom of the post.
