Day 8 of 30 Days Wild was something I actually did a couple of years ago which was plant a tree.
I’ve grown this oak tree from an acorn I found on my local patch.
When fully grown an oak tree can support over 200 different types of insects, hundreds of lichens, not to mention the birds that feed on those insects or nest in the branches.
I found this fact which shows how much we need trees.
“A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 48 lbs./year and release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support 2 human beings.”
