I always wonder just how lonely Trees come to be.Where they part of a grouping that got cut? Did someone plant it? Did a Seed somehow travel way out there?

Can someone ELI5 Pictures like these?

I would imagine an animal ate the seeds from that type of tree, then traveled and pooped it out, then the tree grew there.

Makes sense, I completely forgot about the whole Animal thing.Like Birds and Berry Bushes.

Its the Savannah, characterised by sparsely populated trees. Nutrient and soil moisture availability are usually the limiting factors affecting the biomass growth in savannas, and overall biomass is impacted by competition, fire, grazing, and harvesting.
