We have been learning all about the parts of trees this week. Such as ‘roots’, ‘trunk’, ‘branch’, ‘crown’ and ‘leaves’.. Trees are an important part of our world. They provide wood for building and pulp for making paper. They provide habitats for all sorts of insects, birds and other animals. Many types of fruits and nuts come from trees, including apples, oranges, walnuts, pears and peaches. Even the sap of trees is useful as food for insects and for making maple syrup.
