From Seed to Tree: How to Travel in Style

From Seed to Tree: How to Travel in Style

However magical it may seem, we all know that every beautiful old tree began life as a tiny seed. But if seeds were to fall straight off the tree and germinate at the roots of the parent, the next generation would fail and trees would be in crisis. Evolution created the answer to this conundrum and trees have developed a range of amazing techniques to ensure their seeds travel far and wide…
