Sderot Magnes, Jerusalem, Israel
Click here for a map that contains other items in the area

On the sign:
אורן קנרי
Pinus canariensis

תפוצה טבעית: האיים הקנריים

חשבו בגדול: אורנים אלה הינם גבוהים ממרבית העצים בקמפוס. האצטרובלים הם הגדולים והמחטים - הארוכים ביותר שתמצאו פה.
גזעם ישר וצמרתם מחודדת.

[הפאה השנייה של הקוביה]
[The second face of the cube]
Canary Islands Pine
Pinus canariensis

Natural range: Canary Islands

Think big: These pines, with straight trunks and pointed tops, tower over most other campus trees. Their cones are the largest and their needles the longest you’ll find here.

[הפאה השלישית של הקוביה]
[The third face of the cube]
שים לב לקבוצה של ענפים קצרים, הצומחים מתוך הגזע, מעט מעל גובה העיניים. לאיזה גובה, לדעתך, יגיעו ענפים אלה תוך עשר שנים? חמישים שנים?

[a question]
Notice several short branches projecting from this trunk, just above your eye level. How much higher above the ground do you think they will be in 10 years? In 50 years?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
הענפים יהיו באותו גובה: עצים מוסיפים גובה בצמרתם בלבד, בשונה מבני אדם, אשר צומחים בכל חלקי הגוף.

[The Answer to the question]
The branches will be at the same height as today. A tree grows taller by adding height only at its top (unlike us, who add to our height by growing all over).
