I think it's best to stick to the current model whereby every node belongs to
exactly one tree, and a root node is therefore defined as being a node that has
no parent. If we adopted the alternative definition that every node is the root
of a tree, an awful lot of our terminology would have to change.

(Let's remember that the term comes from botany, not from mathematics. Each
apple in my garden grows on exactly one tree.)
