A fresh sapling, young and new, grows among its ancestral kin. Their roots join to form an ancient web of communication, sharing nutrients through their communal networks. Symbiotic relationships, tree root and fungi combine. A complex grid exists beneath the forest floor. The sapling rises to the light. Its branches extend toward the sun's illumination. It will struggle to survive in the dense woods among its ancestral kin. The sapling will adapt, as living things tend to do. Perhaps it will outlive the rest.
