I think trees are like brothers and sisters.

They’re like brothers and sisters.

Trees are like brothers and sisters.

I was watching television.

I was watching television and I saw a programme about a man.

I was watching television and I saw a programme about a man who traveled around.

I was watching television and I saw a programme about a man who was a biologist and he traveled around.

I was watching television and I saw a programme about a man who was a biologist and he traveled around and he collected specimens of pine trees.

I was watching television and I saw a programme about a man who was a biologist and he traveled around and he collected specimens of pine trees from North America and South America and Europe and Asia and the Pacific Islands.

I was watching television and I saw a programme about a man who was a biologist and he traveled around and he collected specimens of pine trees from North America and South America and Europe and Asia and Africa and the Pacific Islands and all the different countries

Because the pine trees once lived together in the same place.

But the countries have separated.

The continents have separated and the trees have separated.

And the trees died out in Tasmania but that man brought those trees back to Tasmania.

They once lived there a long time ago.

That man brought them back and he planted them there in a botanical garden.

And they live there now.

All those pine trees.

They live there now like brothers and sisters in a botanical garden in Tasmania.

I think trees are brothers and sisters.

They are our brothers and sisters.

We breathe air.

They breathe carbon dioxide.

  24. shahla says:

    Hi, dear i think this subject is very interesting. Due to, the trees are very useful for human life. But, nowadays most of our specimens are destroying inexorably and we will don’t have any like these precious resources in future decades. Our future is destining full of nasty, cramped and squeeze, therefore, everyone has to protected and invest more and more about our Earth. Earth is my mum and trees are my brothers and sisters, this is our patriotic duty for all human being to demote dangerous our Erath.

  25. shahla says:

    I’m a Iranian woman. When I received you email in first time I ignored it, but after some days again I received another email. In second time I embarrassed. I opened your email. And I find it was very useful. This story is very soft and nice, because I love the pine trees. They are a symbol of strong, green, tolerance and loyal. Everywhere ,there is this tree you find the fresh air and healthy .this tree shows to all trees alive in any condition ,and to be power in any events.
    with regard

    Hi all,

    I started to learn with you this week. I’m very surprised because I’m a beginner student, I can understand a lot!
    I love the trees and this history is very beautiful. The pine is a good tree because it is very strong to live with a little water. Long ago, my father carried me a little pine tree and I landed it in the earth, in a field with grapes, today is a very tall pine, every year give me a lot of pinions. I love it. It is green, tall… give me shade and a house for the birds.

    I know that the pine lives with others pines this winter I will prepare other little pine tree to land next to it.

    Four years ago, my father died but I always remember them when I see the pine in our field, green, tall, strong….as my father.

    • mohd shuja says:
