round tree 01Have you ever wonder why tree trunks are all round in section but not in other shapes?

 Life form always made its way towards the most adaptable and comfortable environment.

 That applies to plants too!

round tree 02Based on the same circumference, area for a circle is the largest among other shapes.  Trees made used of this natural advantage and cleverly channel the nutrition through this concept.

 Shapes in circular are more resistant to external damaging.  Imagine a square or flat surface tree trunk will provide a suitable angle for animals’ chews and gobbles.

round tree 03Round shapes also provide less wind resistant, an ideal way to bypass the impact of wind force from the external surf.

 This great wise man on earth inspired the shape of the lamppost.  It takes hundreds of, millions of years of self-development to acquire the stage now.

Day in, day out, we take things for granted.  So, do we know the moral of the story now…?
