Many trees (e.g. strangler figs) grow on the ruins in Cambodia. When they get too large and their weight starts to crack the building or wall, they must be cut down. This is an example on the south outside wall of Beng Mealea next to the three-corridor building. The tree had already been cut down but you can get the idea.
