#shorts #trees #certain years #seeds #idea
Yo, check it out. Did you know that trees be having like crazy seed parties every few years? It’s called a mast year, and they be dropping so many seeds that it’s like a squirrel’s dream come true. Scientists ain’t really sure why they do it, but they got some ideas. One theory is that it’s to help the trees conserve energy. Another theory is that it’s to satiate their seed predators, so that there’s enough left over to grow into new trees. Whatever the reason, it’s a pretty dope phenomenon. So next time you see a tree covered in acorns, just know that it’s throwing down a seed party. And if you’re a squirrel, you better get there quick!
