Creation Devotional June 19 - Botany

Daily Devotional – June 19



Why are trees round and not square? If we had a square tree, think of all the time and effort we would save when sawing them into lumber! Let’s pause and think, why our Creator made trees round and not square?

  1. Wood layers grow outward from the center in all directions.
  2. Cylinders provide maximum strength against stresses in all directions.
  3. Round trees can bend more easily than square-sided trees when a wind is blowing.
  4. Round trees can bend in all directions; square trees would be more vulnerable to breaking at the corners.


The best design for trees is round; if that were not true, telephone poles and light posts would be square and not round. Sometimes, we overlook what is so common in nature, like why a tree is round. But when we stop and consider it, we see a wonderful design that gives glory to our Creator.


All the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord

~ Numbers 14:21
