Trees help the environment in so many ways. The country of Israel began a tree-planting campaign years ago, and the result was that a land of arid desert became a fertile field where now wonderful fruit trees grow, and the soil erosion has been averted. Planting enough trees can even cause climate c…hange and improve the climate. Trees cut down on noise pollution, produce oxygen for us to breathe and use carbon dioxide which our machinery and animals and people produce.. Who can deny the beauty of a grove of lovely trees, and many trees produce nuts, fruit, food for birds, animals and people. We use wood for our furniture, houses, packaging, paper, and ways too numerous to mention. Some tree leaves are used for healing medicines. Deforestation is a problem around the globe which causes climate change. So I would say a good thing you could do for yourself and all posterity would be to plant trees. Small saplings are very inexpensive, and sometimes free. ( Full Answer )
Answer . No. Do not let anything grow on you tree as if it were a trellis. The viney plant will eventually block the sun from the tree and it will die.. Answer . The above answer is correct. Don't plant anything at the base of a tree that will climb the tree. Although Clematis is not as bad a…s ivy, you do not want to do anything to endanger the tree by taking water, or sunlight away from it. ( Full Answer )
Because they are living things and all living things grow. Trees must grow taller to better access sunlight, especially if there are other trees or anything else nearby that would cast shade on them. As the tree grows taller, it also has to grow wider to prevent being blown over by the wind. Below g…round, the roots grow longer to increase the amount of water and nutrients the tree can absorb.

Most tree seeds take root where they fall to the ground. Some are "planted" by squirrels or birds which collect them for food. Humans plant a tiny fraction of trees. Tree growth occurs as trees pull water and nutrients from the soil. Curiously, most of the tree's mass actually comes from carbon b…roken out of atmospheric carbon dioxide, through photosynthetic reactions occurring in the tree's leaves. ( Full Answer )
plant it in the winter, and let it dry out like any other plant and it will grow, grow, grow! BUT, growing trees can be hard. and also very dificult to throw at people.
It requires daily watering and mowing. That is why golf greens are made mostly of sand to help drain the water and keep the grass aerated. Bent grass doesn't like soggy roots that's why topsoil isn't used. They usually fertilize it once or twice a year.
Answer . A dead end. When driving down an unfamiliar dirt road that keeps getting narrower one might jokingly say 'it looks like this road is going to end in a tree hole'.
yes you can....but it needs alot of tlc. in northeast they grow but they have alot of spots and problems ....humidity. pears grow easily
By planting a seed and watering it.. Trees increase in height by building new cells from the apical meristem at the top of the tree. The trunk expands in diameter by producing new cells around the circumference from the vascular cambium, which produces xylem and phloem to transport food and water,… and the cork cambium, which produces bark. Branches and roots grow longer by producing new cells from the lateral meristems at the tip, similar to the apical meristem. The apical meristem and cambium contain meristematic tissue, which is a collection of undifferentiated cells that dive and then differentiate to become specific cell types. ( Full Answer )
Seeds and Grafting . Some trees grow from seeds, such as evergreen trees. Other trees need to be grafted, such as is the case for most fruit trees. Grafting is when the part of a stem containing the leaf buds is taken from a fruit tree of one species and attached to the trunk of an established…, very young fruit tree of a different species. Both trees must be of the same fruit. In this way, the upper part of the grafted branch becomes the top of a new plant. Trees that grow from seeds start out as tiny seedlings, usually growing directly under the parent tree--the tree that dropped its seeds. Often, those seedlings die because they are blocked from receiving sunlight and moisture. However, seedlings raised in nurseries usually do very well, depending on the species of tree. Grafted trees range in size from a few inches tall to two feet tall. As these trees grow, they often need to be staked for added support. . Blooming and Pollination . Once a seedling has been planted, it can grow at a slow or fast rate, again depending on the species of tree. For flowering fruit trees, pollination must occur in order for fruit to be produced. Some fruit trees, like apple trees, need to be cross-pollinated. This means that it needs pollen from another tree in order to bear fruit. Other trees, like peach trees, can self-pollinate. As a fruit tree grows, it will create blooms which will attract the bees needed to pollinate it. Soon the blooms will fall off (usually in late spring), and leaves will appear. Fruit will begin to grow where the blooms were. Evergreen trees usually grow straight upward, keeping their arrow-like shape. Deciduous trees, on the other hand, tend to spread out and may need yearly pruning to keep a pleasing and productive shape. In the fall, the leaves of deciduous trees change colors; they become red, orange, yellow, and brown. In early winter, the leaves fall off, and the tree remains bare until spring, when blooms and buds start to form. . Age . Once trees are established, they can live a long, healthy life. That's true as long as their minimum water and light needs are met. Trees create their own food through a process called photosynthesis. The leaves or needles of a tree collect the energy from the sun to produce sugar, or food, for the rest of the tree. These light and water needs are usually met naturally. Once a tree is established, it does not have to be watered on a regular basis. Depending on the species, trees can grow extremely tall, such as the California Redwoods. Other species might stop growing at a certain height, as many ornamental fruit trees do. Trees do not grow all over. Instead, they expand at the edges. Branches of a tree only grow from the tip and around the diameter. The same can be said of the trunk of a tree. . ( Full Answer )
The leaves are said to have a skeleton. A leaf is said to be askeleton because it is divided into many different parts like ahuman skeleton.
The leaf is the part of the tree that is said to have a skeleton.Most skeletons on leaves can be seen on a gloomy day.
"I said so." is a statement usually uttered by a person who doesnot wish to defend a position with logical argument and thereforeuses their authority to stop an inquiry that is undesirable,exhaustive, or requires more information than the recipient canreadily give.
Tree roots grow so big so they can collect the water supply to send up to the tree and plus its growing and the bigger the plant is the bigger its roots are sometimes !
If you type 'fruit tree trellis' into Google it comes up with 'espalier' (how to espalier a tree).. you must be doing the age crossword too.
The phrase is actually, "So let it be written. So let it be done."This is said by King Rameses to Baka in the 1956 movie The TenCommandments.
1 Pick an apple that you like and save the seeds. To save seeds for a period of time, place them in an envelope and keep in a cool, dry area, that is preferrably dark. to grow, place them in a damp paper towel and then fold it into quarters. Place the towel into a plastic bag and put into the refrig…erator. After at least 6 weeks they should start to sprout. Only about 30% of the seeds will germinate so plant enough!. Step2 Now plant the sprouts into small containers filled with potting soil. Keep the soil moist and in a sunny window. Step3 When the plant is large enough, plant it outside when it can get about 12 hours of sunlight per day. It will need good ventilation and full sunshine. Don't worry about the cold weather as apple trees need the cold to produce fruit. Step4 Take good care of the tree while it is young. Fertilize and prune at the appropriate times. You local garden center should have plenty of information. Step5 After a few years, you should be picking apples. Even if they are not the most beautiful, they should be delicious for many things like fresh apple pie or even cider. Instructions provided by ehow.com ( Full Answer )
Trees grow everywhere except for the oceanic and arctic regions. They sometimes will not live in deserts, depending on the desert climate.
because they want to get as much sunlight as possible and they have to compete with all the trees around them
Oak seeds (AKA acorns) are spread by the wind and by animals like squirrels that eat them but also carry them aroound dropping them here and there. YES
'Tis education forms the common mind, Just as the twig is bent, the tree's inclined.. Alexander Pope, 1734, Epistle to Cobham, 149-50
Yes. Trees that have never been kissed also grow just fine. It is doubtful occulations improve silviculture, though care should be taken in any test the subject does not breathe on the tree, as the added CO2 may yield a slight benefit, skewing results.
A man at the fair in Kilkenny Bought a number of twigs for a penny Just nine times the square Of the twigs he bought there Is half of their cube so how many?
you can write this as the equation:. 9 n n = 1/2 n n n. where n is the number of twigs. multiply both sides by 2, and cancel. 18 n n = n n n. by inspection, n = 18. QED
because it is used soil, therefore the seed with spawn though out the ground finding the closest free soil,
They act as stems in a non woody plant. They contain Xylem andphloem to transport sugar and assimilates up and down the plantbetween the source and sink.
The phrase "as the twig is bent, so grows the tree" means that an influence on a person as a child will continue to be seen in the person as an adult.
Well the the root grow so big so they can collect the water and the top of the trees grow so big to make shade to the bottom of the tree so the water does not evaporate
The taller it is, the heaver. Basically to keep BALANCE. You wouldn't want a tree falling on something?
Light that bend called 'refracted' or refraction of light and that turn back is called 'reflected' or rflection of light.

Emergent trees are the tallest and oldest trees in the rainforest.They grow tall to get light
Thomas Jefferson said, "The tree of liberty needs to be watered from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
when one part of the tree is bent to a certain direction the tree will grow in that direction. This implies the way you teach your child to grow is the same way he or she will follow. This 'twig/tree' concept, combines with the concept that 'you will reap, what you sow'. If you sow wheat, you will …not get corn or peas or tomatoes. Likewise if you sow with a view to 'the flesh', you will reap the consequences; whereas if you reap with a view to 'spiritual things' and 'pleasing Jehovah God' you will reap his promises. In actuality there is much truth to it. For example: If a young boy in puberty is exposed to pornography - - his mind will fantasise on the anticipated pleasures of what he views. Eventually this will lead him to seeking the pleasures he saw, both with his eyes and in his mind. Many become so addicted to pornography, that it is near impossible to stop viewing it. It becomes a struggle, even if he desires to stop. Even if he receives actual sexual stimulation constantly with his mate, his insatiable desire of viewing pornograph continues unabated. In the meantime, any relationship he develops with a female, will become tainted by his expectations, their frequency, and their progressively developing into needing more variety, and more occasions. A variety of different things are 'reaped' progressively, sooner or later at various times. Then, when old age has set in, he reflects on the direction he has 'bent' his own 'twig'; and he may not like how 'bent / warped' it all turned out to be.. ( Full Answer )
Tree. The branch is the hand, the tree is the body, the bark is the skin.
This is a common myth, the hickory tree actually grows on the hyptheom vine which is commonly used as fertilizer and also a main ingredient in meth labs.
you cant plant an apple seed an expect it to grow it doesn't grow at all its impossible for it to grow i know this because i tried it before
The trees are trying to fight for as much sunlight as they can get. So they are growing for the sunlight!
Grasslands generally have poor soil and limited amounts of moisture. If you notice that the grasslands do have trees on the rivers and creeks. or They use to have some really intense beavers.
I assume the asker is referring to normal trees other than parasitic species that actively target established trees.....but the answer is.....YES. If a seed (whether dispersed by wind, bird or animal) finds a suitable place to germinate it will attempt to grow. Often a cavity in a tree or a suitable… crotch will collect organic matter (from falling leaves etc) and become a suitable medium for a seed to take root. Personally I have seen, ficus, japanese pepper, cape lilac and a few others but there is no reason that any seed couldn't have a go at piggy-backing in an other tree. Most wouldn't be able to grow very big tho. ( Full Answer )
No, a tree would need sunlight. Sunlight wouldn't get past your throught. No a tr
Flowers and trees need the gases oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen in order to grow.
nobody said that in the hobbit. the book you're talking about is The Lorax, in which a small brown creature, the Lorax, indeed, speaks for the trees
Yes. I just finished raking about 3 wheelbarrow loads of twigs from our red oaks.
How does a tree decide when and where it will grow new buds or when it will grow leaves instead of twigs and at which location on the tree?
The tree never decides what will happen to it...it is all a natural process and it is the nature which decides all this or god wanted it that way!
Halloween 4-6 (Jamie's movies) works on the basis that Michael was cursed as a young boy and to get rid of the curse and obtain peace, he must kill his family, once he does the curse will then be passed on to someone else.
He is determined to effect change. This was even his campaign slogan. Most people must have wanted change because the majority voted for him. Some of the changes he has made were not well received by everyone, but almost nothing is agreed upon by 100 percent of the people. The people who support the… changes, obviously, do not consider that he is ruining the country but improving it. The people who disapprove of the changes or just disapprove of the man no matter what he does ... well, they apparently believe that he is hell bent on ruining this country. This is all a question of perspective and opinion. ( Full Answer )
