Birch Tree Securely Rooted

Inspired by… an imaginative view below the ground of a Birch tree, how does the root system support the large tree; is the Birch tree securely rooted?

The bare limbs of the birch tree in winter expose the structure of the tree which is only fully seen when the limbs are without leaves. The lower half of the scene represents what one would find if you could see the root system underneath the tree. The tangled limbs of the trees are supported by the interlocking roots reaching deep in the earth to provide a strong foundation.
