If you see a tree growing on top of another tree, you will certainly feel amazed and this is by no means an ordinary sight. But it’s not impossible either. Somewhere in Italy, there is a tree that thrives on top of another tree. This is a reality in a place between Grana and Casorzo in Piemonte, Italy. This tree is called the “Double Tree of Casorzo” or Bialbero de Casorzo in Italian. Both of these trees were mulberry trees and on them grew a cherry tree. The mulberry is a fertile ground for the cherry trees above it.
This unusual tree is also known as the Grana Double Tree. This is really a strange occurrence, no one knows how this plant can grow so fertile on a mulberry tree. The assumption is that sometimes birds drop various seeds on the mulberry and then grow roots through the hollow host tree and the roots reach the ground.
Indeed, there are often plants that grow on other trees or host trees, but not like what we see here. This is really odd, where the cherry tree on top can grow to the size of a large tree as it grows above the ground. In fact, if we look at there is not enough soil or humus to be able to grow a tree that big. These double trees are also called Epiphytes, like the Bialbero de Casorzo is a rarity.
These two large trees grow together and become an inspiring sight. The branches are 5 meters long and then on top of them grow cherries which are now very big too. They both live together, with the same food source. Maybe this is not the only double tree that exists, but both are a rare and unique sight in the world.
Even if the source of nutrition is the same, they can share very well without having to elbow each other. This is the Double Tree of Casorzo, a rare sight in our world.
