You post this because you're having trouble with the maples? Are they quite convinced they are right? Are the oaks just too lofty? You know... cause they suck up all the light. Unfortunately the oaks can't help their feelings. Since they love the way they're made. They're wondering why the maples can't be happy in their shade.

Ever breathe the air in a desert, not as fresh as the air in a forest.

I have a feeling that my Maple tree in the back yard will fall over this hurricane season. It's in the side of a small hill and a major root is coming up out of the side of it.

They're alright

Hell yeah! Trees Bro. They give us oxygen and we give 'em dead.

#27 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4737 posts) -

Well, I fucking love oxygen.

#28 Posted by Grilledcheez (3947 posts) -

I've never met a tree I haven't liked

#29 Posted by Undeadpool (4935 posts) -

How do they work?!

#30 Posted by coakroach (2490 posts) -

Trees are fucking great as long as they aren't home to spiders or some animal that wants to kill me.

This is the best response I can give, for I have no witty quip nor 25 year old pop reference to post.

So, yes, oxygen. I tend to enjoy it. I love it so much that I couldn't live without it for long.

Fuck trees. I'm all about bushes.

Well those who know what's best for us must rise and save us from ourselves? Eh? Right? *taps mic*

They take the carbon dioxide we produce and convert it to oxygen through a process called photosynthesis. Without plants and trees, no new oxygen would be produced and every human and animal would die.

#39 Posted by RPGee (759 posts) -
I have, right outside my house, one of the ugliest trees in existence. It's called a paperbark tree.

Trees are pretty cool, though, what with the whole carbon-dioxide-into-oxygen thing, which, as @Morrow correctly says, is photosynthesis. Energy from the sun and carbon dioxide goes in, energy for the plant and oxygen goes out, as a very convenient arrangement for us and other animals. Hooray for 9th grade science education.

#40 Posted by Morrow (1829 posts) -

@RPGee:

Aww. The ugly need love too ♥

:D

Our flora is probably the most underrated thing in our world.

#41 Posted by RPGee (759 posts) -

@Morrow:

That's true, it is a great tree. Doesn't need to be pretty to loved by me.

And I assume you mean Australian fauna? I agree it's completely underrated, but perhaps because I have more exposure to it, what with my gardener father, I've seen more of it than your average person. Also, I wonder how many "uninformed" foreigners assume it all houses funnel web spiders or will straight up eat them.

#42 Posted by Morrow (1829 posts) -

@RPGee:

Err no, I actually meant that all our fauna, all plants and trees there are and what they do, is underappreciated by most people. They are what keeps us alive yet we destroy more and more of it.

I'm a gardener as well :)

Man, you're confusing magnets with trees. Common mistake.

And to answer the topic, yeah, Trees.

#44 Posted by RPGee (759 posts) -

@Morrow:

I said fauna, didn't I? Meant to say flora. Damn. Ever had that thing where you tell yourself not to confuse one word with another, guaranteeing you will confuse it?

Anyway, that's the sentiment I was going for anyway. Yes, many are plenty pretty to look at, but they're such complicated organisms, each with their own idiosyncrasies and quirks but all of them vital in their own way and terribly fragile, and it's a shame many people don't seem to care much about them.

But I'm not here to push a pro-environment agenda here tonight, and I'm getting off-topic from this off-topic forum. For the record, I like trees a good deal, and remember a time when I liked climbing some too.
