    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 find peace and comfort in trees,

    and love the idea that they were here before I came and will be around long after I'm gone. My husband and I planted a tree on our wedding day and look forward to watching it grow through our marriage.

    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.

    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...

    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 🌳❤️

    I love trees. A cool shade on a hot day. Climbing in the trees is one of my favorite past times. Think Rue from the Hunger Games. I can live in the trees if I try. Most people describe it as a talent. I have fallen only once, it was severe but I climbed again.
