An amazing set of tree roots!

This cedar tree is on the grounds at the Piedmont Avenue School in Oakland, California. This school serves younger children from ages five through eleven, and I sometimes see the students walking on the roots.

Amazing roots Fleur .. they don't appear to have cracked the paving :)

Yes, that tree is well behaved. Some of the sidewalk sections, the darker gray parts, date from 1941!

Growing along side the sidewalk barrier must be frustrating for the tree...
