    Not entirely correct. The Cypress "knees" are considered a portion of the root system. As seen in the video, often portions of them are above the water line. But for the most part, you are still on point, Very cool...

    I agree. With a 7' DBH, that is 672 - 1/16ths to center, or nearly 4 years growth per 1/16th inch....
