Infantry?

Also

seems like an oxymoron since Infantry are definitely not infants!

Is it

infantry ("infant" + "tree")

where

"oxymoron" is included not because of any true oxymoron present, but because trees emit oxygen and infants, not having attained normal adult intelligence levels (when it comes to performing well on intelligence tests as opposed to, say, learning languages), are in a sense morons.
