Are there names for the different types of roots on a tree?

    There are different types of roots for all plants. Roots start with the radicle root, which is like the plant embryo’s root. It then forms into the primary root. The primary root of certain types of plants (gymnosperms and dicotyledons) can become a taproot (basically the central root). This can form a taproot system, made up of a bunch of lateral roots that spread outwards from the central root. The roots you see above the ground are called aerial roots. Prop/stilt roots help support the tree. There are also feeder roots, roots which take nutrients and water from the soil to the tree.
