Transcript of Trees


By: Andriea Villarruel
Over 23,000 different kinds of trees in the world
Trees can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year
One large tree can provide oxygen for up to four people
Trees are the largest living and one of the oldest living organisms on earth
Almost 98% of a tree is made up of six elements; carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur
One acre of trees can provide enough oxygen for up to 18 people
What Trees Really Do
What We Think Trees Do
Life Functions
Types - Classification
Other Organisms
Works Cited
Trees help keep our air clean, improve water quality, helps prevent erosion, and provides food for us
Trees trap CO2 from the atmosphere and makes carbohydrates that are used for plant growth
Trees reduce noise pollution if you live near a freeway and they help you during the summer and the winter by not having to spend a lot of money cooling and heating your house
Trees help make our drinking water more cleaner
Trees absorb stormwater so that we don't have floods
Trees are what makes up the earth
They are homes to alot of animals
They provide oxygen for us so that we can breathe
Trees provide shade for us in the summertime and blocks the wind for us in wintertime
Trees help provide paper and other resources
From this project I have learned that trees play a big role in our lifes. Trees help us out with almost everything that we need in life. Trees supply us with oxygen, food, and shelter and they do the same for wildlife animals as well. If we didn't have trees than nobody would be alive right now. Trees are what makes our environment look beautiful and helps it stay healthy.
Leaves - contains chlorphyll which gives the leaves their green color so that they can make photosynthesis to give us oxygen to breathe
Crown - part of the tree that consists of leaves and branches at the top of the tree
Trunk - supports the leaves and the branches, also contains xylem, cambium, phloem, and the heartwood
Thunderchild flowering crabapple
Showy Mountain Ash

Trees bring good money for the economy if they are healthy, tall, and big. If you are selling a house with trees around and they are healthy than they will increase your property value. Trees help reduce violence around urban areas and can reduce the amount of electricity that you use. Cherry , pecan, apple, and peach trees are good for the economy because they help produce fruits and nuts which helps the economy. The farmer distributes the fruits and nuts to local farmers markets and grocery stores to sell to the public.
The structure of a tree is composed of an underground part which would be the roots, and two above ground parts, the trunk and the crown
Trees renew our air supply by taking in carbon dioxide and letting out oxygen
The amount of oxygen produced by an acre of trees per year is equal to the amount consumed by 18 people. One tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year
Trees improve water quality by filtering rain water as well as protecting aquifers and watersheds
One acre of trees removes up to 2.6 tons of carbon dioxide each year
You can learn to identify many plants especially because they can be classified into families which share many similar structural traits. Trees are an example of ‘convergent evolution’, this is when one or more unrelated livings things adopt the same biological traits.
All organisms are living things.
