    Wait, did you misspell root once, or roof thrice?

    I suggest wood bridge blocks or barrels.

    Here is a lighter version.
    Ty for the wood bridge idea, ill try that. Maybe mix roof blocks with wood bridges.'image

    I made all roots with mixed wood blocks, but then decided to change it cause it looked too messy, couldn't tell where which root is. But then racerdog said roots are supposed to be messy...
    This project is so frustrating...

    Looks more like a dilapidated house than roots to me

    Barrels would look better because they're rounded and stuff.

    I would suggest to use only wood backdrops and wood panels not any solid blocks so it doesn’t look like old house ruins.

    Just backdrops and earth? no root walls? hmm Interesting idea. I will try it out.

    This tree is sort of my long long term project. Sort of the heart of my world. And it's totally something I usually build, so it's not working out how I want it to...

    Yes, but barrels only go straight down... it would look weird if I want the root to swirl a bit...

    Here is what the tree looks so far.image

    This is what it looked like in February (on the right are trees from ArcanGrove)
    image
    So 7 Months + about 3 months for the bottom part - it's been about a year for the tree now. I am guessing it will need another 6 months or so to finish growth.

    Well, that's just what I think would look best...

    But perhaps this will change your mind!
