JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
Some of the oldest living organisms on the planet are trees, but how exactly do they grow? A new study in the journal Nature provides answers. Thirty-seven scientists from 16 nations collaborated and found that trees grow faster—not slower—as they age.
This research could influence how scientists address climate change. Forests full of elderly trees could potentially leech lots of carbon dioxide from the air, eventually reducing the volume of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
The Nature article supports last year's findings that a lack of trees can prove fatal for humans. So, get out and plant trees—and think twice before you cut one down.
