Conversations with George the Collie Pt.2

‘What are trees for dad?’ asked George. I think I have told him more than he wanted.


George and I are out in the garden, taking advantage of the good weather in order to tidy up before Sunday’s party.

‘What are trees for dad?’

I stop what I’m doing and addressed the question.

‘Well buddy, trees do lots of things for lots of people. They provide shelter, wood for fires, furniture, you make paper from it, it provides shelter and food for animals and birds, they produce oxygen, the roots hold soil together to stop erosion and protect land, the trees protect people, they can be decorative too – they do loads of things and provide so much to so many. That’s why we have to protect the forests as much as we can.’

Staring up at the massive Beech trees that lined the bottom of our garden George says ‘Oh. Okay.’ Pausing to scan the branches he added, ‘I like sticks. They’re good for that too……’
