HOW MANY FLOORS DOES AN OAK TREE HAVE?

World of Knowledge (Australia) - - Nature -

Oaks are like high-rise build­ings, com­posed of sev­eral storeys: the moss or soil layer (up to 0.15 me­tres), the herb layer (up to 1.5 me­tres high), the shrub layer (up to 5 me­tres high) and lastly the tree layer which can reach a height of up to 50 me­tres. Each of these floors has its own habi­tat with spe­cific res­i­dents who ful­fil de­fined tasks. This helps the ecosys­tem of the oak to func­tion prop­erly.
