Fun Fact About Trees

“Trees can live anywhere from less than 100 years up to more than a few thousand years. It all depends on what type of tree it is. In the United States, the tree with the longest lifespan is the bristle cone pine, which grows in the mountains of Nevada and southern California. A singletree can live up to 5,000 years!”

Trees are known to live for thousands of years longer than the people who plant them. In those centuries it would be interesting to know what the trees have seen and experienced the difference in temperatures and weather changes over the years. Different animals who have occupied or fed from the trees. The stories that trees could tell would be far interesting. To live so long could it be said that trees could tell us our journey as human and how civilisation took place?


If we were concious enough to speak to trees could they tell us their pain from watching their families being cut down daily for human benefits? Could trees tell us about their trauma from listening to their loved ones crying for help as their cut down. They could tell us about the toxic pollution they’ve had to endure as we create our chemical based factories and constant smoke over the centuries. They would tell us about the droughts and fasting they’ve experienced the stories they could tell us could help us reflect on our own evaluation.


The love, hate relationship trees would have with us humans, would be a very interesting factor or discussion. What do trees think of us, have we been good to them?  The knowledge we could learn, in order to rectify a lot of our errors. Think of the information they’ve passed down generation after generation, knowledge that surpasses human existence. The stories they’ve been told by their ancestors about life before humans. They could tell us about our development over the years to our current state of Homo Sapiens.


Plenty of animals and plant based creatures have gone extinct in the past few centuries, imagine the stories trees could tell us about such creatures how they lived and what they particularly like to do during the day and what they did in different seasons, how they seemed to feed and choose to eat and what caused them to go extinct, what could have been done to prevent such from taking place. What could be done differently to prevent the next animals from going extinct. Imagine the amount of time effort it would save certain  scientist to learn about certain things, not only scientists but also historians and farmers and garden lovers, so many could benefit from communicating with trees, would we be better humans if we could communicate with trees? Would we see things differently if we could take a slight glimpse into what trees have seen over the years?


Imagine the health benefits we could get from different trees, the knowledge we could learn from trees about certain things that they have that could be used to cure diseases and cure illnesses and how we could prevent certain animals from dying not only humans but all living creatures.

Fun Fact About Trees

Recovering From Disaster

Fun Debate Topic

I leave you guys with a cool fun debate to have with your friends and family, on the endless possibilities of this question. IF A TREE FALLS IN THE FOREST AND NO ONE IS AROUND DOES IT MAKE A SOUND? Remember the more you ask questions about this and think outside the box the more interesting it will get.

For those interested to share their results after their Debate email me at tshepod@nsabasi-publishing.co.za.
