Fact of the Day: Ancient Trees

Trees have existed on the Earth for at least 370 million years, first appearing during the late Devonian Period.

You know, this is the first time I'm hearing of Devonian period. Just googled it, and I didn't know that there are "periods" during the Paleozoic Era! Eeeeek! Thanks for this tidbit, Adam:)

Pat.
Who really cares what the religious "nutters" say?
Anyhow more to the point, Adam, where did that photo
of that "lone" trees come from and what type of tree is it?

Plus I have never attributed a "tree" as a "being" - ha ha.
That is a rather bizarre comment below.
I have heard of a song - "I talked to the trees", but have never
imagined that the tree answered back!!!
