The trees obtain Carbon from CO2 that comes from atmosphere


The trees get carbon from carbon dioxide which trees obsorb from atmosphere for the process of photosynthesis.

The trees absorb CO2 from atmosphere from leaves, which had little openings called as stomata (more on lower surface of leaves). This CO2 is one of the main ingredient in photosynthesis, in which in presence of sunlight, water (absorbed from roots), carbon dioxide (from atmosphere) and chlorophyll (green pigment in leaves) forms glucose (C6H12O6).
