Is a trunk considered a branch? Not sure to me, so I guess since these challenges are so subjective, I'll accept it as a branch.
The color in this shot is very nice. I like the green of the grass, however, maybe a bit TOO green. Everything kind of blurrs together and it's hard to look at. Not sure if toning down the green would help, or if it just needs sharper focus.
I see that your intent was to have a fantasy like photo and this does have a dreamy feel to it, however, it's just missing something. I do supose that this would make a better abstract than anything, since we don't really get much detail out of the grass or tree trunk.
The trunk itself is quite dark against the bright green grass, making it hard to see much detail there also.
I like how we are at a low angle and that the tree is off to the right and the scene itself looks beautiful. I just wish we could see more of it.
It appears that the main subject in the photo is the color. That alone takes the focal point away from what is truely the main subject. Kind of distracting really.
Overall, nice color, but needs something to draw me into the photo and hold me there. In my opinion, that would be detail.

the branch is such a tiny part of this photo. i like how its not in the middle, but it went too far off the side.

Focus is off and there doesn't seem to be a subject.

Out of focus and doesn't succeed in expressing the roots either.

A sharper image would help this one.

The green is too overpowering for me (even the tree trunk is tinged green) and I am not sure if I like the soft focus.
