This is a definite fairy tree. It is rooted at the right; the trunk is split into multiple sections which come back together; branches descend to the ground and are re-rooted, with the trunk eventually re-rooting as well. People leave offerings in the branches. I saw coins, bits of clothing, keychain sheep, and a manikin formed from a tuft of wool. I wondered if the manikin was something more than an offering.
