Anyone understand why this occurs?

If you imagine straight lines connecting your eyes to any branch, you are only seeing the light illuminating the branches from that point of view, and as you are at the centre, it will appear to be circular.
Further digression. It's pretty easy to tell which instruments are playing in an orchestra, even though the signal reaching your ears is just a single train of pressure waves. But if you had never heard the individual instruments, would you know that the sound is coming from a violin and a trombone playing together, or would your brain synthesise a single source? How long does it take to learn to separate them?
