Day 177: Tree Sapling

“A tree sapling is an immature tree with a slender trunk. Depending on the species of tree, a sapling can be between three and 15 years old, and range in height from 2 to 10 feet (about 0.61 to 3.05 m). Saplings differ from seedlings, which are trees that are less than three years old. The principal attributes of a tree sapling, aside from its age, are trunk flexibility and smooth bark; mature trees generally have thicker, darker outer bark. Ordinarily, saplings do not produce fruit or flowers.” To read more click here

  1. Such a beautiful little sapling. I trust it will grow up to be big and strong and provide nature and her animals with all they need. 😀

    Such a beautiful photo and great link as well Jackie. I loved the ‘Did you know’ that popped up and first had to read that. LOL!

    Did you know the hair on a polar bear is transparent, not white? Also, women blink twice as much as men. See what I mean? I am still reading it. hahahaha! Thanks for sharing. ♥
