Quicquid plantatur solo, solo cedit

The Latin legal maxim “Quicquid plantatur solo, solo cedit” describes the principle that anything attached to or growing from the land belongs to the land. This is often used in property law to determine ownership of fixtures and improvements made to land. In simpler terms, anything that is affixed to the soil becomes a part of the soil itself, and therefore, ownership of such things typically transfers along with ownership of the land.
