How to Draw an Apple Tree - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: To start, draw the roots. Draw a few “V’s” upside down in a line.
Step 2: Now, it’s time to draw the trunk. From the top of your roots on the left side, draw a curved line facing inward. Draw another curved line facing inward from the right side of your roots. This is your trunk.
Step 3: Next, draw the leaves. You’re going to use small semi-circles to form the shape of a circle around the top of your tree. Draw a few batches of semi-circle inside of your circle to look like the leaves or popping out.
Step 4: Finally, draw apples. Draw a wide oval on a spot of your tree but instead of the bottom being round; make it come to a small point inside of your apple. Now draw a small line going up, at the top of your apple to make a stem. Repeat these steps for as many apples as you want.
Interesting Facts about Apple Trees
Apple Trees were brought over to North America from Europe. However, the tree is naturally found in Central Asia. The trees are grown for their fruit. Apple Trees grow to be 5 to 30 feet tall. During the spring the trees bloom in small pink flowers that turn white as they get older. Apple Trees depend on honey bees to pollinate the plants. The bees take the pollen away on their legs and move to other trees to take the pollen to other flowers. Apple trees have to be 8 to 10 years old to produce apples.
