Bet You Never Knew Trees Were This Interesting… Yes Trees!

What a title hey? Yeah, trees may seem one of the most basic and dormant creations. Yet, trees have many important values to them that will truly make you think twice about ever chopping one down or dissing a tree again (not that dissing trees is a common conversation topic of choice!)

This video below, uploaded by YouTube Channel ‘It’s Okay To Be Smart’ sets out to inform you just how many trees there are in the world. Yet along the way, teaches you some incredible facts about trees that will surely make you think differently about these enormous creations of mother nature.

For example did you know the world’s tallest tree reaches 380 feet into the sky? Or that one giant sequoia has enough wood to fill a 747 plane? Or that one baobab tree in South Africa is so wide that they’ve put a pub inside it?

This video is filled with some really incredible facts about trees, looking to eventually answer the question ‘How Many Trees Are There?’ The host, Joe Hanson does eventually answer that question with an estimation based on a lot of different, already known, numbers about trees on the Earth.

Anyway, let’s tell you some more interesting facts about trees that we now know. For example, did you know that 1.6 billion people on the planet rely on trees in some form or another for their income? Also, did you know that 43% of all trees in the world are in Tropical or subtropical regions? Finally, the last fact is not fun at all… did you know that we are losing around 48 football fields worth of forest every minute due to humans chopping them down?

This is a fact we’d rather not know! Yet, is true! Let this video inspire you to realise just how impressive trees are and just how important they are too when it comes to future of the human race!
