Partridge in a pear tree
Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree
I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree
 There are references to trees in music, literature, proverbs, etc. But they are also an iconic visual as a standalone item next to the house in a children’s drawing or in groups of every size from oases to huge forests.
In the forest and the jungle they create whole environments. Standing alone on hillsides they create lovely shadows. Trees can be tall and straight like a winter pine or bend in the wind. Limbs and branches create wonderful patterns against the sky. A tree will support a tire swing for a child on a hot day; provide sturdy posts to tie up the pet pup or hold a hammock off the ground, as well as support a backyard laundry line.  In winter snow covered trees create beautiful landscapes.
