English term or phrase:vine trees
some temples have been overtaken by nature itself...lifted off the ground by huge vine trees.
Explanation: tree=in connection with other words=
Staude, Gebuesch, Strauch
Can also be "Rebenstock," where the grapes grow on, but it is highly unlikely, because it is not strong enough to lift things off the ground,
whereas "Kletterpflanzen" are. Actually
I would leave the tree-part and translate it only as "Kletterpflanzen" or "Schlingpflanzen," the tree-part is
pretty much implied.
