One of the scouts nods, pulls out a camera and starts taking pictures.
He then raises command. "We've got an open rift here that may be doing
something to the Tree. Sending pictures. Awaiting further orders."

The pyramid is clearly channeling both energy from the nexus and from
whatever lies beyond the rift. The lack of response from the tree
makes it seem likely that the pyramid is somehow suppressing the
tree's powers or its command of the ley line. Any further
investigation is going to be very hard from this far away.
