    Defending A "Stupid" Tree

    Today at lunch, I was enjoying the sunshine, when I looked over and saw a bunch of boys abusing a poor sapling. They were using keys to saw into its trunk, which was so small and limber you could fit your thumb and index finger around it. They were bending it back and forth...

    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.

    Find Time

    Find time to sit under a tree.Trees are silent conversationalists.They stitch the earth to the sky.They greet sun and rain equally.

    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.

    I've always loved trees.

    I got comfort in them during a time in my childhood. I had two I called "friends" and they had names. I would talk to them, give them "meals" and climb in them and make music on them by using branches. I was 10/11. I was sad to move away and not see them again. Lame I know. Is...

    You're Gonna Laugh...

    One of the happiest days of my life was the day my boyfriend bought a tree for our house. It was a HUGE, beautiful tree--a Heritage River Birch--and we hadn't even closed on the house yet. The moment he told the man at the nursery that we were going to buy the tree, I felt the...

    I Love Trees

    Trees captivate me for all that they are! Life which runs through their core helps to remind me of how intricate life is in all of its forms. Roots which hold into the ground remind me of a stability of which I yearn for. Giving off fuel so that everything else may be alive, a...

    The Comfort Of Trees

    When I was a little girl, we moved into a house with peach trees in the backyard and a little willow tree out in front. I spent countless hours playing under the biggest of the peach trees and telling my troubles to the willow tree. When I was seven and my father did something...

    It Started With a Leaf Collection In 9th Grade.

    Assigned to collect, identify and then preserve leaves from 75 different trees in Illinois, I had no idea how it would produce such an admiration for trees or how it would provide one of the few truly bonding moments with my father. A former Botany minor in college, my father...

    and I, is of both of us sitting in a tree. I remember the vivid way the tulips were lined up, there vibrant colored petals still in bloom. My father had been trying to get me to pose for a picture for a while now, but being the energetic child I was, I wouldn't stay in one...

    I would love a treehouse.

    A proper treehouse which is 100% off the ground. Little scary. I'd love to sit in it during a rain pour while reading. Bliss!! And it will be like a real house with windows, insulation and doors. Even a bed!!!

    My favorite tree - Gingko.

    My favorite type of forest - pine. My favorite experience in the woods: being alone on a trail run and seeing an owl fly away with some sort of food. I love trees bc they make up forests - and I am a total forestry nerd. My husband is an ultra runner - so we both love...

    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.

    Some thorny, spikey, brushlike tree-thingies

    are being cut down. I'm not sure what the real name is, because I've never checked, but I like them. I admire things that can defend themselves. Nothing can defend itself against a human though, so they're being cut down, as humans (except me) tend not to like spikes and brush...
