Do you feel special attachment to trees, that they're a comfort to you like nothing else can be?

No, I absolutely despise trees and anyone who has anything to do with them......Oh wait, I'm trees on here. :D


I like trees. I used to love looking at all the different leave shapes and sizes, but I lost that sense of wonder/amazement when I was required to learn their names in high school biology. i could no longer admire the leaf shapes because instead of saying "Look, I could make clothing out of leaves that big" or "Look, that leaf looks like a ghost." I'd think, "oh, that's sassafras. how boring."

Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.
~Kahlil Gibran

I honestly hate trees.

And this is not trolling, I really don't like them.

Why don't you like them?

I love to climb them, to listen & watch them blowing in the breeze. I've had many a comforting afternoon swaying in branches.

Most trees are my friends. The only ones I have problem with are ailanthus.

I like trees, my favorites are pines.

I enjoy forests, and being below a tree's shadow

I love pines too. I spent years living with them in the mountains. I can vouch for them being very loving, giving, sympathetic and humble. They offer their bark, needles, nuts and acorns, to all that need...they have many friends among the animal and fauna kingdoms. They get along well with their surroundings, ask so little, and give so much. They absorb tears and pain very well, mother pines / also grandmothers will counsel too.

They live in hierchy and community, with communications and care for their young ones. They clean the air with their scent, rendering it sparkling and fresh. They are also very beautiful to look at, calming a wild and tortured soul.

don't know if this is the same sort of thing,but am find it calming to go and sit in a quiet place surrounded by swaying trees.
