    why isn't there a big ditch under/around the bottom of trees? trips me out that trees are on flat ground or even a little raised mound. how does that happen?

    Plants are mostly made of air, carbon dioxide to be exact. Its major component is cellulose which is essentially a carbohydrate, meaning "hydrated carbon" of course.

    trees arn't made 'outta air", but you could almost say air is made "outta" trees. or at least made BY them.

    sunlight, water and soil neutrients, the latter comming partialy from what animals like ourselves have to get rid of, our exhailed carbon, our shit, and ultimately our dead carcassess when we leave them behind. in turn they give us back the air we could not breathe without, as well as building materials, again not just for hoomans but all creatures. and sometimes things to eat as well.

    nature recycles 100% and plants are the other side from animals. taking in what we throw out and thowing out what we need to take in. plus the sunlight, because even nature isn't 100% perpetual motion. so energy gets pumped into the system from the sun too.

    the living part of the tree, other then the leaves through which they transpire the oxygen we need, is just the layer just under the bark.

    Most of the material that makes up a tree is absorbed from the roots. A redwoods roots can be spread hundreds (sq) of feet around the base of it. A large part of the mass is stored water in the living cells of it. So that is why it doesn't sink but expand.
