Oak Trees and Acorns
Dear friends,Did you know...
Oak trees can live a thousand years?
Oak trees can grow to 70 feet in height, 135 feet in length, and 9 feet wide?
An acorn only contains one seed, unlike other seed pods where there are lots of seeds inside?
One oak produces 2,000 acorn’s every year, but only one in 10,000 acorn’s will manage to develop into an oak tree? Most acorns are eaten by wildlife.
Oak trees symbolize wisdom, courage and endurance? The tree’s height, long life span, and deep roots ensure that it sees many events during its life.
The oak tree was voted the U.S. National tree in 2004?
It seems that Acorn comes from good stock. Acorn may seem small and insignificant, but he carries the potential of the mighty oak tree. In case you’re feeling small or insignificant today, remember you also carry great potential. It may be hidden right now, but it’s there!
