Tree information and links

  • In botany, a Tree is a perennial plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most species.
  • In wider definitions, the taller palms, tree ferns, bananas, and bamboos are also trees.
  • Trees are not a taxonomic group but include a variety of plant species that have independently evolved a trunk and branches as a way to tower above other plants to compete for sunlight.
  • This trunk typically contains woody tissue for strength, and vascular tissue to carry materials from one part of the Tree to another.
  • For most Trees it is surrounded by a layer of bark which serves as a protective barrier.
  • The shoots typically bear leaves, which capture light energy and convert it into sugars by photosynthesis, providing the food for the tree's growth and development.
  • Palms, bananas, and bamboos also produce seeds, but Tree ferns produce spores instead.
  • Trees play a significant role in reducing erosion and moderating the climate.
  • They remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store large quantities of carbon in their tissues.
  • Trees provide shade and shelter, timber for construction, fuel for cooking and heating, and fruit for food as well as having many other uses.
  • Because of their longevity and usefulness, Trees have always been revered, with sacred groves in various cultures, and they play a role in many of the world's mythologies.
