BUTTRESSES: Most tropical trees have
a very superficial root system for recycling
nutrients from the rapid decomposition
of forest litter (see number 38)
but not so good as support in large trees.
Flatened roots extended to the sides
accomplish the function of support, like
in this “Bully Tree” (locally “pilón”)
(Hyeronima alchornoides) (see numbers
14 and 24).

LOS CONTRAFUERTES DEL BOSQUE: La
mayoría de los árboles tropicales extienden
sus raíces cerca de la superficie, para
obtener el alimento derivado de la rápida
descomposición de las hojarasca (ver
número 38), pero no son el mejor sistema
para brindar apoyo a los árboles de gran
talla. Algunas raíces extendidas a manera
de contrafuertes, o “gambas”, como en
este “pilón” (Hyeronima alchorneoides),
sirven eficientemente de sostén (Ver
números 14 y 24).

RAICES ZANCUDAS: Varias palmeras, como
este “maquengue” (Iriartea deltoidea), producen
raíces en el tronco que al alcanzar el suelo
ayudan en la obtención de agua y nutrientes y,
además, mantienen el equilibrio de los altos troncos
(¿Puede ver las hojas de esta palmera desde
el suelo?). Esta es una solución alternativa al las
gambas, que se explican en el número 7.

STILT ROOTS: Several palms , like
this tall tree (Iriartea deltoidea),
grow stilt roots from the trunk
that, aside from getting water and
nutrients, grip the ground firmely
for balance for the tall trunks
(Can you see the leaves from the
ground?). This solution to equilibrium
is an alternative to the
buttress roots, as in number 7.

UN ARBOL MUY COMUN: El “mastate”
(Poulsenia armata) es otro árbol
que desarrolla gambas espectaculares
(ver números7 y 24). Sobresale en el
bosque pues llega a alcanzar 40 m de
altura. Su distribución abarca todo el
Neotrópico desde México hasta Bolivia,
y en Costa Rica se le halla en las
dos vertientes.



A VERY COMMON TREE: The tree locally
known as “mastate” also develop spectacular
buttresses roots (see numbers 7 and 24). They
reach the higher canopy with a higth reaching
120 feet. They are distributed through the
Neotropics from Mexico to Bolivia and, in Costa
Rica they are found in both slopes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buttress_root
Buttress roots are large roots on all sides of a tall or shallowly rooted tree. Typically they are found in rainforests where soils are poor so roots don't go deep. They prevent the tree from falling over (hence the name buttress) and help gather more nutrients. They are there to anchor the tree and soak minerals and nutrients from the ground, a function that would prove difficult if the tree was unsoundly rooted. The roots interwind with other buttress roots from other trees and create an intricate mesh, which helps to support all of the other trees surrounding it. They can grow up to 15 feet tall and spread for 30 or so metres above the soil then for another 30 metres below. When the roots spread horizontally they cover a wider area to collect nutrients. They stay near to the top because this is where all the main nutrients are. The roots are close to the surface and can be seen to have spread over a large area.

tree crotch / divided tree trunk


Explicación:
I do not find any support for this suggestion in the sites I looked at, but this seems NECESSARY in the source context. The measurment of saw-wood from a given tree would have to be measured differently from the ground to the division where two major branches separate, than from this crotch rising to the canopy, both in terms of material quality and for volume of available material.

Hope that this helps somehow. Regards, Mariana.
