Fun Friday: Apple Trees

Today for yesterdays Fun Friday I'm going to be telling you about Apple Tree.

The Apple Tree is a kind of fruit tree usually found in the Northern States.The tree averages in size of up to 30 feet high,sometimes 40,and the apple its self is usually 6 inches wide.All of us have heard of world records right well here's a apple world record.Did you know that the largest apple grown was grown in Japan and weighed over 4 pounds that's more than my Aunt's dog!The Apple Tree is one of the most popular trees found up in the Northern States.The flowers are a member of the rose family but for some reason the flower looks more like a Magnolia Flower although the Apple Tree became so popular because of the man who made history by traveling through the Northern States and planting apple seeds along the way and his name is Johnny Appleseed.

That's my report on the Apple Tree.The End.

The Maple Tree is one of the most common trees in North America.

It is a huge tree usually growing to the average size of up to 50 feet but some can get up to 70ft.They are deciduous trees meaning they loose there leaves in the fall.When the leaves of this tree falls off the leaves spin like a helicopter while falling,where coming in for a landing.The leaves of this tree are all sorts colors throughout the year.In the Spring they are a nice shade of green,in the Summer they get a brighter shade of green,in the Fall they get the colors of red,yellow,and orange,in early Winter they start to fall of and the leaves are dark brown,and in mid and late Winter the trees are bare and the leaves at the bottom are brown.Then the cycle repeats over and over again!The flowers of this tree are thin and sit up right,most other tree flowers don't do that.

That's my report on the Maple Tree.The End.
