i have an idea for upcoming leavecutters in freeplay

you could like place roots in the undergrowth so you can firt get soldiers before digging to surface+1 root could give like 160 food?
Leafcutters get leaves, roots are sticks holding a plant and to give it water also it would look weird if you saw a root going straight your underground. And currently, the underground and the surface are separated pretty far, that is how every game is set up so it wouldn't really make sense.
