Inosculation is a natural phenomenon in which trunks, branches or roots of two trees grow together. It is biologically very similar to grafting. It is most common for branches of two trees of the same species to grow together, though inosculation may be noted across related species. The branches first grow separately in proximity to each other until they touch. At this point, the bark on the touching surfaces is gradually abraded away as the trees move in the wind. Once the cambium of two trees touches, they sometimes self-graft and grow together as they expand in diameter. Inosculation customarily results when tree limbs are braided or pleached.

  • Inoculatie is een verschijnsel waar de takken van bomen samensmelten wanneer ze langdurig met elkaar in aanraking komen, dit kan gezien worden als natuurlijk enten. Dit verschijnsel kan ook ondergronds optreden in het wortelstelsel zodat de bomen water en nutriĆ«nten kunnen delen.

  • Inosculation is a natural phenomenon in which trunks, branches or roots of two trees grow together. It is biologically very similar to grafting. It is most common for branches of two trees of the same species to grow together, though inosculation may be noted across related species. The branches first grow separately in proximity to each other until they touch. At this point, the bark on the touching surfaces is gradually abraded away as the trees move in the wind. Once the cambium of two trees touches, they sometimes self-graft and grow together as they expand in diameter. Inosculation customarily results when tree limbs are braided or pleached. The term "inosculation" is also used in the context of plastic surgery, as one of the three mechanisms by which skin grafts take at the host site. Blood vessels from the recipient site are believed to connect with those of the graft in order to restore vascularity.
  • Inoculatie is een verschijnsel waar de takken van bomen samensmelten wanneer ze langdurig met elkaar in aanraking komen, dit kan gezien worden als natuurlijk enten. Dit verschijnsel kan ook ondergronds optreden in het wortelstelsel zodat de bomen water en nutriĆ«nten kunnen delen. Bovengronds schuren takken onder de invloed van wind tegen elkaar tot het bast beschadigd raakt. Na verloop van tijd is al het schors weg en raakt het cambium van de takken elkaar waardoor de takken samengroeien. Natuurlijk enten komt vaak voor bij bomen van dezelfde soort. Tussen verschillende soorten is het minder gebruikelijk.
