I was curious about a question Musa asked on one of his posts. Do rocks really store moisture?

I found these two trees growing on top of a large rock outcropping while visiting Cooks Forest in Pennsylvania. It was obvious to me that the large tree (at least thirty foot high) started to grow on top of the huge boulder many years ago. It has since dropped roots into the soil below where it now thrives.

I checked out a site on the web to see why plants seem to grow out of rock crevices, this is what I found.

I will post a closer view in a WS

Hello Ron,
This remind me of a wood visited in spring in south of Romania....the same rocky wood with moisture.

Hello Ron,
Beautiful presentation of those trees growing on huge rocks. Attractive interplay of light and shade.There is enough moisture inside the rock due to rotten lichens and other microscopic plants. Beside this roots going deeper and deeper in search of water, even cracking the rocks.
Well exposure and details.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,
Srikumar
