Trees do so many wonderful things. If you plant a tree, you can watch it grow. Because trees live for a long time, that very same tree will be alive for many years to come! Trees shelter us from the rain, and they give shade when the sun is too hot. Some trees, like apple trees, even give us food to eat. But trees don't just help you and me. Trees do many wonderful things for the animals of the world, too. Trees offer food and shelter to animals and birds all over the world. They even keep the air clean so we can all breathe. Trees are amazing! Plant a Tree and Watch It Grow seeks to help young children better understand the importance of trees to all living creatures. Author Sue Matinkhah suggests teaching children to participate in improving their environment now and in the future by planting trees and watching them grow, a very simple and fun activity.

This gorgeously packaged little book celebrates trees and their life-affirming presence in our lives. The earth's longest living organisms, trees exemplify nature's great strength as well as its majestic beauty. Serving as virtual lungs for our planet, trees provide us with food, medicine, and our most versatile building material. To plant a tree is to plant hope, and as an act of commemoration, it literally gives life to that remembered. While it is in-deed a practical book that explains exactly how to plant and care for a tree, How to Plant a Tree is so much more. Drawing on the ancient rituals and folklore that surround particular trees, the author explores their symbolism and traditional uses, and offers suggestions for various commemorative tree-planting acts, such as: A marriage ceremony A new baby ceremony A new home ceremony A memorial for a loved one With lovely original black-and-white illustrations throughout, How to Plant a Tree encompasses a wealth of both useful and inspiring information, including fascinating miscellany on some of our most beloved tree species like the willow, the oak, and the plum; how to calculate a tree's age; and how you can use trees to fight climate change. How to Plant a Tree will inspire readers to view trees as living structures of hope that will be treasured for generations to come.

The Great Depression of the 1930s set the stage for "the greatest afforestation program the world has known" when the Forest Service was given the task of planting shelterbelts from Texas to Canada in a zone a hundred miles wide. The venture, known as the Prairie States Forestry Project or the Shelterbelt Project, resulted in the planting of millions of trees between 1834 and 1942. Today, the millions of trees planted in the Depression stand as a monument to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who originated the idea of the project, and to friends of environmental concern everywhere. Not all the trees are living, and many of the belts have been removed in the interest of technological advances in Plains' agriculture or the farmer's decision to increase his planting acreage. Conservationists and spokesmen in government have become alarmed by the destruction of the belts. The time has come to re-evaluate the importance of trees to the environment of the prairies and plains of mid-America, for recent droughts again created a need to plant trees to combat erosion and to make the region more hospitable to the people who live there and who provide the world with its bread.

Plants and trees are among the most complex natural objects. Much work has been done attempting to model them, with varying degrees of success. In this book, we review the various approaches in computer graphics, which we categorize as rule-based, image-based, and sketch-based methods. We describe our approaches for modeling plants and trees using images. Image-based approaches have the distinct advantage that the resulting model inherits the realistic shape and complexity of a real plant or tree. We use different techniques for modeling plants (with relatively large leaves) and trees (with relatively small leaves).With plants, we model each leaf from images, while for trees, the leaves are only approximated due to their small size and large number. Both techniques start with the same initial step of structure from motion on multiple images of the plant or tree that is to be modeled. For our plant modeling system, because we need to model the individual leaves, these leaves need to be segmented out from the images. We designed our plant modeling system to be interactive, automating the process of shape recovery while relying on the user to provide simple hints on segmentation. Segmentation is performed in both image and 3D spaces, allowing the user to easily visualize its effect immediately. Using the segmented image and 3D data, the geometry of each leaf is then automatically recovered from the multiple views by fitting a deformable leaf model. Our system also allows the user to easily reconstruct branches in a similar manner. To model trees, because of the large leaf count, small image footprint, and widespread occlusions, we do not model the leaves exactly as we do for plants. Instead, we populate the tree with leaf replicas from segmented source images to reconstruct the overall tree shape. In addition, we use the shape patterns of visible branches to predict those of obscured branches. As a result, we are able to design our tree modeling system so as to minimize user intervention. We also handle the special case of modeling a tree from only a single image. Here, the user is required to draw strokes on the image to indicate the tree crown (so that the leaf region is approximately known) and to refine the recovery of branches. As before, we concatenate the shape patterns from a library to generate the 3D shape. To substantiate the effectiveness of our systems, we show realistic reconstructions of a variety of plants and trees from images. Finally, we offer our thoughts on improving our systems and on the remaining challenges associated with plant and tree modeling.
