Trees out of thin air, who knew?!

Many of us look at a tree and assume that it must grow so tall and sturdy because it’s planted in the ground. It must get most of its mass from the earth, right? Wrong! Trees actually develop mostly by using the air around us. Most of us know that trees take carbon dioxide in and return oxygen to us but what we don’t realize is that they are using the carbon dioxide to create their mass! In fact, 95 percent of a tree is made of carbon dioxide! This may seem unbelievable but it’s 100 percent true. Trees are amazing! Tune in tomorrow for more tree facts!

As professionals we take the time to get to know as much as possible about trees and their makeup. It’s important to know how they work to keep them healthy and growing. It’s also important to understand this when we perform removals. Knowing about the tree we are removing helps us do it safely! We hope you love tree facts as much as we do!
