Fantastic facts about trees

The trees are amazing. Before we start joking, here are some fantastic facts about trees.

  • Trees have existed on Earth for at least 370 million years.
  • Trees provide food, shelter, fuel and building materials.
  • Some tree species can live for thousands of years.
  • Trees act as the lungs of our planet, converting carbon dioxide into oxygen.
  • Trees work together to deter predators. They send chemical signals to scare away pests, warn other trees of danger, and attract predators that feed on the pests.
  • There are 422 times more trees on earth than people.
  • Trees can communicate with each other through an underground network of soil fungi – they can even transfer nutrients, water and unused carbon to each other!
  • Leaves come in many colors, including red, yellow, purple and orange, not just green. Chlorophyll makes leaves green and dominates until it gets less sunlight when other colors start to dominate.
  • There are over 60,000 species of trees on our planet.
  • Trees release chemicals called pesticides, and studies have shown that inhaling them can lower blood pressure, reduce stress levels and make us feel happier. Nothing out of the ordinaryforest bathit's getting more and more popular, right?
