If the tree was isolated in the perfect temperature and planted in soil from the earth, whith 
carbon at its reach to breath in, would it grow and create oxygen? If so, then couln't we 
eventually build some sort of air shield around the moon, plant trees and make sure the 
air doesn't escape through the air shield, therefore making it possible to colonize the 
moon and other planets, and inabit them?
