My botany professor instructed me to address my
question to plant-ed. I am curious about root grafts,
and I would appreciate any response to my inquiry. My
question is this: I have learned about the
disadvantages of root grafting to trees; trees can
contract such diseases as Dutch Elm Disease, and can
support other trees that compete for their light. Why
then, did trees develop such an adaptation; that is,
what advantages are there to root grafts? Thank you
for taking the time to read this.
