Friday Fun Facts


• “Moon trees” were grown from seeds taken to the moon during the Apollo 14 mission in early 1971. NASA and USFS wanted to see if being in space or the moon’s orbit caused the seeds to grow differently.

• The different parts of a tree grow at different times throughout the year. Typically, most of the foliage growth happens in the spring, followed by trunk growth in the summer and root growth in the autumn and winter.

• Trees drink about 2,000 litres of water each year.

• Trees lower air temperature by evaporating water in their leaves.

• Pine trees grow on six of seven continents, with Antarctica being the only one left out.

Friday Fun Facts

Today we bring you the very interesting Tetrameles nudiflora tree.

• Tetrameles gnudi flora grows to 20 m (70 ft) high with a spread of 10 m (35 ft).

• It is found in Cape York Peninsula in Queensland and many other countries such as India, China, Malaysia and Thailand.

• The trunk is buttressed, and the bark is grey and often shiny.

• It is deciduous, bare of leaves between October and December in Australia and typically January-April in Vietnam.

• Its large size means that Tetrameles nudiflora is suited to parks and large spaces rather than private gardens.

• Despite its timber being soft, it is used in New Guinea to make canoes.

Friday Fun Facts

When you go down to the woods today you're sure of a big surprise!

A mystery began a few years ago in Yellowwood State Forest when a turkey hunter, scouting in a remote area of the 23,000-acre forest, discovered a large boulder in the top of an 80-foot-tall chestnut oak tree. What he saw wedged among its branches was a boulder about 4 feet wide and a foot thick.

The boulder was eventually dubbed Gobbler’s Rock after the turkey hunter. It sits high on a south-facing slope overlooking a ravine near Tulip Tree Road in western Brown County and is thought to weigh at least 400 pounds.

After the initial sighting of Gobbler’s Rock, hikers have found at least two more giant sandstone boulders sitting in the top limbs of two sycamores. One boulder is nearly 45 feet off the ground and both rocks appear to weigh about 200 pounds. The trees are 100 yards apart growing near the banks of Plum Creek in a seldom-visited part of Yellowwood State Forest, just southwest of Helmsburg.

Known to locals as URBs, or Unexplained Resting Boulders, officials can’t explain how the boulders got wedged into the branches in the first place. The huge rocks couldn’t grow upward with the trees because the saplings could not have withstood their weight. The boulders must have been placed high in the trees after their trunks were sturdy enough to support them.

Other suggestions include- a tornado, drunk students with too much time on their hands, high flood? Some even believe that this was the work of UFO's and they have been the subject of much speculation. Perhaps we will never know!

Friday Fun facts

The Mystery of the Crooked Forest in Poland

Approximately 100 oddly shaped Pine trees which were planted in 1930, are located outside Nowe Czarnowo, West Pomerania, Poland.

Each tree bends sharply to the North just above ground level, then curves back upright after a sideways excursion of 1-3 metres.

It is unknown what caused the trees to grow like this, however, one theory is that a human tool or technique caused it to create naturally curved timber for use in furniture or boat building.

Another theory is that a snowstorm could have knocked the trees to grow into a curved shape but it unlikely that we will ever find out!
