Trees are pretty cool. The tallest one is ~116 m, they turn CO2 into oxygen, for some their leaves change color seasonally, others don't change at all, and they can be found pretty much everywhere. And when you model them with math, you can come up with some cool graphics. Nicholas McDonald's article is all about using C++ and a binary tree to model tree branch growth, specifically focusing on the splitting process, leading to some very pretty graphics of trees growing.
