Tree for the world written by Marijke Creveld Ph. D.
On the 9th of August 1945 the plutonium bomb fell on Nagasaki announcing the end of the second World War. A large part of the city was totally destroyed and a great many people died.
As by miracle one tree survived close to the epicenter of the blast.
This is the Kaki tree, the Diospyros kaki. Its capacity for survival makes this the tree for the world.
