The "Mathematical Curve" of Cross -Sectional Area 

Please bare with me while I decide how to present this.  Animation is coming.

Basic Numbers

Topics to address based on the mathematical curve

"As a tree gets larger in mass, the amount of energy to maintain order increases as a parabolic curve".  In heartwood forming trees,  heartwood reduces dynamic mass.  [Dynamic / Static Mass]

Heartwood - Reduction of Demands. (Internal Regulating System)

Increased Nitrogen Fertilizer (It's Not Tree Food!!!) - Increased Demands.
(Violation of Internal Regulating System?)  

Space - Temperature - Elements - Water  (STEW)

Is bigger faster, better?

Ecological Stages of Trees?

Where's the Water?

Where's the Reservoir?

Where's the Calcium?

Where's the Mycorrhizae?

Trees of the Forest?

City Trees?
