Trees Are a Perfect Living Entity

In our modern technological world, I wonder if we had the choice to create the perfect material, what would it look like? Something that can be used to make so many useful things yet so economical and readily available.


Nature is a wonderful thing. It has given us just the stuff we need for a progressing world. The tree is one shining example. From firewood to ships to log houses to paper and a million other items that makes our lives richer. As an engineer, I can appreciate the beauty of the design. It is light weight yet strong and easy to shape. Trees are just perfection. I have to wonder if it was all by chance?
