Ok a tree starts from a seed...not a tree type mutant and evolved to his present state of a oak lol

the tree would have had to been planted as a tree to have it come into existence.
pollination ..ment there would have had to been more than one mature Tree or the tree's would have never have Been.

So there for tree's and life was instantaneous.
not evolution over million's of year's.

I think trees are really awesome, and have a lot to teach us about ourselves. I always thought it was so crazy how something could grow so big and intricate out of a seed. Mind boggling stuff.

I read your OP again. Maybe trees/plants started as one type of tree/plant, and then evolved into all kinds of different trees/plants depending on their environment. Wow. It's like a parallel to animal evolution. Crazy. I never thought of trees as evolving organisms, but damn, I guess they are.

Plants are one of the oldest life forms on this planet. At some point hundreds of millions of years ago, humans and trees shared a common ancestor. We know this, because of common DNA we share with trees and pretty much everything else on this planet.

No-one really knows how sexual reproduction evolved, but it happened a long time ago, way before there were any trees around. We do know why sexual reproduction evolved however, and that is in order to "mix and match" DNA strands to help promote evolution through random beneficial mutation.

What you have put forward there my friend is a chicken or the egg scenario.

I wonder what it's like to be a tree? You'd have to get pretty bored. If you could even get bored without a brain.

reminds me of the bible story.

adam eats the apple from a tree.
it had there had to be more than one of these tree's we wasn't suppose to eat from.
and the fruit changed our very dna forever.
basically lol

No, it did not change our DNA forever.

I'm setting off the troll alarm.

Yeah angiosperms coevolved with insects....

It finds that plants invaded land not directly from the sea, as many scientists had thought, but from fresh water, where they spent millions of years preparing for the rigors of terrestrial existence. And it concludes that the many families of green plants living on land today descended not from separate evolutionary upstarts but from a single green "Eve," a near relative of which still lives today in pristine lakes as it did more than a billion years ago. The project also confirms a counterintuitive finding, first proposed six years ago, that fungi -- including yeast and mushrooms -- are more closely related to people than they are to plants.
