Tree of life

From a recent National Geographic message:

Sequoia, redwood, eucalyptus, cherry, and more; this week at National Geographic, we’re shouting from the treetops! See stunning and unprecedented 360 views from 250 feet up, revealed by California scientists. Or check them out for yourself on a visit to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. India broke a world record by planting 50 million trees in one day, but one teenager is on track to plant a trillion! Read about it here. Scroll through this breathtaking gallery of the world’s oldest trees and read about their tall tropical relatives. Find out what we can learn from trees (as seen in the March 2017 issue of National Geographic magazine), then meet some ancient trees with stories to tell. Every organism, large and small, depends on trees—just like this tiny wasp that turned a fig tree into a 150-foot-high eden.
