Be Like A Tree

Interesting Facts

• Some trees can “talk” to each other. When willows are attacked by webworms and caterpillars, they emit a chemical that alerts nearby willow of the danger. The neighboring trees then respond by pumping more tannin into their leaves making it difficult for the insects to digest the leaves.

• The most massive living thing on earth is the Giant Sequoia in the Redwood Forest of California. It stands nearly 30 stories tall and 82.3 feet in circumference. Its weight is estimated at 2,756 tons.

• No tree dies of old age. They are generally killed by insects, disease or by people. California Bristlecone Pines and Giant Sequoia’s are regarded as the oldest trees and have been known to live 4,000 to 5,000 years.

• Trees receive an estimated 90% of their nutrition from the atmosphere and only 10% from the soil.
