Donate at to plant 20M trees by Jan 1, 2020!
How do trees get so tall? Do you know? Trees sprout from seeds, just like flowers, but then they grow MUCH MUCH taller. In this video, we’ll talk about HOW trees do it! They don’t grow bigger all over, like you do. They only grow in very special areas. We’ll learn about a special kind of tissue in trees called MERISTEM. We’ll also play a game - can you guess the tree, if you see its seed? Watch and find out!

Socratica Kids is proud to be part of #TeamTrees! #TeamTrees is a collaboration of your favourite YouTubers who are working together to plant 20 MILLION trees by January 1st, 2020. We’re raising funds with the help of the Arbor Day Foundation, who are known around the world for planting and supporting beautiful trees.

If you want to join #TeamTrees, visit Be sure to get the help of your grownup.
The goal is to raise $20 million dollars by 1/1/2020. That comes out to $1 per tree. What a bargain!
The Arbor Day Foundation is working hard to find where in the world are the best places to plant these 20 million trees - where are they needed and where will they grow well. That way the trees can grow strong and healthy, and can contribute to a healthier planet for all of us!
