More on Trees

Here’s a little nugget gleaned from the latest volume to reach the bedside table:
140,965 olive trees

136,217 citrus trees

22,745 fruit trees

10,365 date palms

8,922 others

Oh, dear, what’s he on about now, I hear you mutter.  Well I’ll leave you to chew over these numbers for a few days.  Have a guess, go on.  It’s an interesting subject and one on which I may have more to say shortly.
