How do trees collect nutrients to grow?
Look closely at the shape of deciduous trees (those which lose their leaves in the winter). Each type of tree has its own characteristic canopy shape. The branches grow in certain ways in order to provide the perfect amount of sun to shine through to their leaves. These leaves are like miniature solar collectors, bringing in the sun and combining it with water and nutrients to make the tree’s food.
The tree’s branches hold the leaves in an optimum sun-collecting position, depending on its leaf size and shape. Each tree has different sized and shaped leaves, requiring a different canopy arrangement in order for the tree to produce the right amount of food it needs to grow and survive.
God designed a tree’s shape perfectly in order to receive the resources it needs!
