Narrative

This tree is important to us because we pass it everyday on our way to classes. It provides shade on warm days and a beautiful scene to pass in the mornings. In addition to that, it also provides a home and environment for all the creatures here on campus. Not only do the trees provide a beautiful environment, but they also help to provide for the environment. They have a sentimental value also, reminding us of our childhoods climbing in trees and running around the yard.Without trees our world would be a blank canvas and they provide for us in so many ways.
