Why don't treesTrees grow upwards. Kilos and kilos of wood race towards the light.
Trees create their own energy, photosynthesis (photoscience...) (photoscience...) and the like, sure, but they do not create their own mass, do they? Where do these kilos of wood come from?
This mass must be extracted from the soil, one way or the other. So, my conclusion is: trees must dig their own hole. The bigger the tree, the larger the hole.
However, a quick scan of the trees in a park does not provide supporting evidence. Not a single tree stands in a hole. Even the largest tree is on even ground. How do trees do this?
Could it be that their growth rate is so slow that the rain levels their hole, even before it becomes noticeable? A plausible explanation for the trees in the park, but what about the trees in the parking lot? Trees, soil and dirt do not get the opportunity to close a hole.
I don't know what trick they have up their sleeves, but:
Trees are in the monkey business!Till next week,
