NOTES: This is a recently damaged structure. As recently as 2013 it was the only known example of a triple span living root bridge. Sadly, a landslide occurred sometime in 2013 or 2014, completely destroying one span, damaging another beyond usability, and putting the overall health of the tree in question. The surviving span still seems to be in relatively good health. It is the highest living root bridge included in this study, and is being actively maintained.
NOTE: PLEASE GO TO ANALYTICS AND ANALYSIS (APRIL 2017 DRAFT) FOR METHODOLOGIES. LR PROJECT DESIGNATION DOES NOT REFLECT LOCAL NAME.
