Do well in the hot sun and poor soils with good drainage. All told, an energy harvesting tree with a 20-foot-diameter canopy is expected to cost between $12,000 and $20,000, van der Beek notes, and would produce about 120,000 kilowatt hours over a 20-year life span. Purchase a suitable tree for the region, climate, and your yard.

Photographs taken of a plant beside the pipe crossing of the Waiarohia Streem, behind Whangarei Boys High School, were dogens of school children cross each schoolday. The most widely planted species was L. ovalifolium. The germination of some seeds is improved when they are processed in this way. [83] Nuts may be gathered by animals such as squirrels that cache any not immediately consumed. [84] Many of these caches are never revisited, the nut-casing softens with rain and frost, and the seed germinates in the spring. [85] Pine cones may similarly be hoarded by red squirrels, and grizzly bears may help to disperse the seed by raiding squirrel caches. [86] The earliest tree-like organisms were tree ferns, horsetails and lycophytes, which grew in forests in the Carboniferous period.
