For whom is a tree a home?

Trees provide shelter to numerous animals and some plants. The leaves of the trees are a food for the caterpillars of butterflies, herds and other insects, and many species of beetles lay eggs in the bark of trees. Birds are nesting on the branches or settling in the hollows. Nests and wild bees are arranged in hollows. Many trees live on trees: squirrels, monkeys, laziness, bats and koala. In a humid climate, some plants, especially mosses and ferns (and in the tropics of the orchid and bromeliades), can grow simply on a tree, rooted in the hollows, where there is nutritious overhang. Such plants are called epiphytes.
