My corporate computer did not allow me to load your photos, but I can picture 
what you were posting, as here in Pembrokeshire we have a Coastal National 
Park. It reaches inland up the two arms of the Cleddau estuary. One of the 
characteristic features of some parts of the bank are these types of oaks, 
growing out of mostly well-bedded Devonian sandstones and siltstones I 
believe. They often seem to defy gravity.

Subject: the plasticity of oak trees

Dear All,

I was intrigued by a series of oak trees growing along the edge of a tidal 
estuary.  I have known these trees since I was a child, but never really 
thought about what I was looking at.  However, looking at them through an 
arborists eyes, they are very strange indeed; they have slumped under their 
wight/gravitational load, as the bank has been eroded beneath them, and 
changed shape; the oldest now have their bases some 3m below the original 
level; the trees' buttresses and root systems changing shape under load, 
whilst keeping the trees upright.

I'm hoping that this time you will be able to view the photos in this flickr 
album I've set up for the purpose; the photos are described 1,2 etc with 
brief descriptions.

See link below.

 Trees are a constant surprise!

Atb

Rupert
