I have only seen root inosculation to occur on old surface tree roots. Planting trees closely together (almost) always results in a tangled mesh of individual roots. Even though they are quite tightly packed, they do not fuse/inosculate.

Is there a fundamental reason, such as the Casparian strip, that precludes the possibility of (young) root inosculation?
