This tree had grown successfully by managing to penetrate cracks in the shale with its roots, and when it finally fell over its roots tore up a huge ball of shale leaving a gaping hole below. I'm guessing this will fill in with soil during rains and the next tree to grow here will be able to get a deeper foothold.
