1. Go to the woods. Get a pinecone.🌲🌲🌲

2. Put the pinecone in a pot - so that most of it stands out.

3. Pour it every day with a small amount of water, as excess water will make the pinecone rot.

4. After some time, a tiny tree will appear.

5. Congratulations - they just started oxygen production and you have a piece of forest in your own home.🍁🍂🍃.

You're doing something for nature, and you'll see what nature does for you..... ❤💚❤

    Love this idea... I have a yard full of pine trees so this is instantly going to be on my list of things to do! Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Are the pine cones still viable after a hard freeze? I've got a pine tree in my yard, and I'd love to try this.

    We live in a forest, in a mountain river valley. Every year I need to pull pine trees from my gardens. Those pictures are lovely, but the full-sized trees provide too much shade and take up far too much space.
