    Trees are extraordinary,

    I like the palm tree the most because it makes me not worry about stuff or that I'm never alone. When is starts to get dark (sunset) It look more beautiful watching them as the sun goes to sleep :)

    TREES BY THE LAKE ...COMPASSION

          TREES by the lake..... As the sun rises slowly over the horizon, over the trees, these trees become all of a sudden golden. All the leaves are bright with life and as you watch them as the hours pass by, - an extraordinary quality seems to spread all over the land, over...

    Am I The Only One?

    Do you ever see a leaf fall from a tree and think to yourself "I am the only person in the world that just saw that leaf fall"? That crispy, small, seemingly insignificant leaf. And you have just witnessed one of the most beautiful things in nature...all to yourself.

    Trees Are Our Counterpart

    We need oxygen, they need Co2 They counter balance us in a perfect way. They harness the energy of the sun to make life possible on this earth. They are the powerplant (power-"plant") of the earth fuelling the food chain with energy from the sun. Aren't they just awesome...

    Inextricably Linked

    I feel secure in shade. Open spaces, while beautiful to look at, make me uncomfortable. I need the security of groups of trunks, reaching upward. It makes me feel safe. I need them to be buffers for the wind. I like to feel protected there. The sound through ...

    A Much Loved Tree With No Friends

    Today I watched as the most beautiful tree in my village was sliced into small pieces and taken away. It was part of an avenue - formed from all sorts of species, but this beech tree was the avenue's crowning glory. Every Autumn its hundred-thousand leaves would turn the to the...

    Tree Song

    You are a majestic tree. Your spread branches reach to the ready skies. Your roots are deep, entrenched, resolute, you. I am a remarkable tree. My spread branches continue to reach, stretching, My roots are less deep, some are marred, growing, me. But we stand side by side. You...

    I think that I will never be as graceful

    as a redwood tree Nor can I reach as high As branches do into the sky Somewhere if I do not fade I hope to find a redwood's shade Where I can sit and read a book And pretend it's my special nook

    Though we are very keen to save our planet

    and trees.. when we write “save trees” in a paper, remember that we already cut a tree for making that paper. So please be sure about not wasting the papers, be with electronic medium to express ourselves. Use less paper means saving more tress.

    Most of my childhood was spent climbing trees.

    Whenever I was mad I would go hide in this giant pine tree in my backyard that was taller than my house and no one besides my sister ever knew where to find me. In all honesty that's where I would be right now had my father not cut it down

    Tree's are awesome, I love climbing them

    and just sitting in them and looking around, noticing the fine features in leaves and learning about how trees grow. It is especially cool when the roots are half poking out of the ground.

    I Love Trees

    Something about their structures,

    curves, and elegance that makes me enjoy Mother Nature that much more. My favorite time of the year is winter. A tree is completely bare, the only thing adorning it is the light powdered snow, or a coating of frosty ice 🌳❤️

    Trees are beautiful. Some mighty,

    some small. They are full of life lessons. They teach us it's okay to bend in the wind and stand our ground. Sometimes we might be covered with a heavy load and be so low, but this will pass and we will be okay. If we don't take care of ourselves, we won't last long. Toxic...
