Sometimes plant share their nutrient with underground root network

But if there are plant that grow on other tree. Is it possible that it would merge into another tree and sharing resource. I mean opposite to parasite that it not steal resource but give the leftover to the host? Any plant do that?

I heard some plant like Coast Redwood or Banyan could grow their child on their branch as epiphyte. Can them sharing resource between each other?
