: This is a saying which Koreans use often. I wonder if there is anyone who knows the meaning of it.

Seems to mean that an individual with an assortment of interests,intellectual pursuits, hobbies etc will continue to grow and prosper. That person is always moving--physically and mentally--in some fashion.

The roots of this tree--the wisdom, knowledge and understandings that this person has amassed--generate and nourish the branches.
