Living root bridges are a form of tree shaping. They are handmade from the aerial roots living, growing, organisms of rubber fig trees by the Khasi and Jaintia peoples in India of the mountainous terrain. Under ideal conditions, a root bridge can last for many hundreds of years. As long as the tree from which it is formed remains healthy, the bridge will naturally self-renew and self-strengthen as its component roots grow thicker.
