But fortunately we still have wonderful young minds like that of a 13-year old boy, Aidan Dwyer, who uncovered the mystery of how trees get enough of sunlight in a crowded forest.

Turns out the pattern and its corresponding ratios are reflected in nature all the time, and Aidan’s keen observation of how trees branch according to the formula lead him to test the theory:
