The Tree Model and the Rhizome Model

That’s the tree model, as opposed to the rhizome model.

DJ : What do you mean by that?

DL: The tree model is hierarchical, Rhizomes are different. Rhizomes are thickened stems that grow horizontally under the surface of the soil. The rhizome is the model of grassroots movements.
