Ever heard the story of the Chinese Bamboo Tree?
Don't worry, not everyone has, but you know i'm going to tell you it anyway.
Are you sitting comfortable?
Then i'll begin.... :)
You see this remarkable tree is different to most trees.
You see it doesn't grow in the usual way.
Most trees will steadily grow over a period of time.
But not this special little tree.
You can provide it with the most perfect of tree growing conditions - plenty of sunlight, plenty of rain, perfect soil
you will see nothing pop out of the ground for the first 4 years of its existence!!!
Can you believe that?
4 whole years - 48 months!!!
But then in year 5 something special happens.
.....in fact almost magical.
This tree pops it's head out of the ground and starts to grow at an astonishing rate.
In fact, over a period of just 5 weeks it can grow up to 90 feet!!!
