    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...

    Olive trees are a favourite

    because of all they symbolise. I like lemon trees, in Nice we have a festival. For magnificence it is hard to think of a tree to rival the cedars of Lebanon.

    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

    While I think they're all magical, there's something about pine trees and pine groves that makes me feel I'm near an old soul, (though I know pines grow rather quickly, and the oaks around must be physically older,) an old soul who knows me, understands me, and will help me if I...

    when I was in my high school until the earlier semesters of my college. Just each time I had the chance, I would draw a tree, high, without leaves and just adding branches here and there. I felt better if I did that when I got nervous or sad. Wish I can find my old doodles and...
