Crown shyness

What an interesting word. 😀

“Crown shyness is a phenomenon observed in some tree species, in which the crowns of fully stocked trees do not touch each other, forming a canopy with channel-like gaps.“

How do the trees know not to touch each other?

Nobody knows though it’s been studied since the 1920′s.

So sweet.
