How is the Internet like a forest?

I am working with a small company called Polycot. The name comes from the term Polycotyledon, a plant which has more than two cotyledons (seed leaves). Many firs, spruces and pines are polycots. Polycots thrive in a wide range of climates, and are well suited to long term growth. Some of the largest plants on the earth, the California Redwoods, are polycots.

So I'd like to write about the term "polycot" as an apt name for this group who develop networks and do communications consulting for small businesses and non-profits.

How are networked environments like forests?
Is Live Journal a glade in the Internet woods?
How is Live Journal or any other node on the Internet a system of roots and branches, biosystems, undergrowth, fires?
