So... I'm a little confused about the physical descriptions of the three zones. Can there be a giant cedar tree growing in the Crown? Is there soil up there for it to grow in, or is it simply a huge mass of giant branches?

Is the Roots zone subterranean, necessarily? Or are the "above" and "below" references just for how to approach those zones from the Trunk zone? And once in them, they are distinct worlds with ground and sky and whatever we choose to put there?

Yep.

From the POV of Trunk, sure. From Root... ?

Could be, just as Australia is "below" the US on a globe.

Yes and no. You can treat them as such, but each is related and has an effect on the other (albeit much removed from Root to Crown or vice versa).

Let me rephrase the question, then:

Just because the metaphor of root < trunk < crown is true from the trunk's point of view, we shouldn't necessarily limit ourselves to that metaphor when we're building out the roots and crown areas?
