This 'tree' is really a pyramidal neuron of cerebral cortex.  The axon exiting at bottom goes long distances, eventually splitting up into 10,000 small branchlets to make synapses with other brain cells.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
