Trees are made up of many parts, such as leaves, trunk, and roots. All of the parts of the tree work together to keep the tree alive, just like the parts of the human body do. Trees need several fundamental elements in order to survive: food, which it makes itself, using sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water. If a tree is in a good environment for growing, including good soil for its roots, it will grow strong and beautiful.
Trees are living, breathing organisms that, like all life forms on this planet, need food and care in order to survive. Trees also die as well like all life here on earth as part of the life cycle. Trees are an integral part of this planet’s health and vitality, and it’s important that we take care of them.
