After a large flood event occurs (over many, many years), why are trees left
standing with only a small portion of their trunks? If the top falls off, why
doesn't the whole tree disappear also? I know that the roots are holding it in
place, by after many years after the tree dies, why don't the roots just release
the tree? I don't understand this.
