Ancient Pine Tree

After the Cambrian Explosion a species of tree grew lush on the super continent Pangaea.

Known by scientists as “Pinus Terra” this incredible pine tree grew upside down. The trunk, branches and needles all grew below ground only exposing its roots to intake carbon dioxide.

The impact this tree had on the world should be known by everyone as this tree later evolved to poke its soft tender needles out of the ground taking over the surface as grass. This is further validated by the fact that grass is found on all continents including Antarctica.
