While hiking Black Rock Mountain State Park, Georgia, I took a side trail that led to a boulder pile, where serendipitously I discovered this unusual tree. This is what can happen when a tree sprouts on top of a decaying stump. The stump continued to rot away, leaving the tree standing on its roots. Photo taken on May 13, 2022.
