The longer a sound wave takes to transverse the trunk, the more decayed the tree is.
Who said money doesn’t grow on trees? Take this grandpa!
It’s good to be Queen. But it’s even better to be the Queen’s elms.
Silly trees, can’t they set the thermostat lower, like the rest of us?
A forest’s trees capture carbon not only for themselves, but also engage in an active “trade” of sorts with their neighbors, a new study found. University of Basel botanists found that this process, conducted by symbiotic fungi in the forest’s soil, takes place even among trees of different species.
Europe is likely to lose all its ash trees, the largest-ever survey of the species warns. Plagued by both a fungal disease known as ash-dieback and an invasive species of beetle, the emerald ash borer, the tree might be wiped clean off of the continent.
Wind gusts are so unforgiving that the trees themselves molded into weird and crooked shapes. There’s an almost surreal beauty to their shape, though — it brings harshness to life. You won’t find anything like it anywhere else in the world.
