Take a few minutes to tell one another the names of
trees that you know or have heard of.  Mention the
things trees give us. Then read this poem about trees.
Trees are for birds.
Trees are for children.
Trees are to make tree houses in.
Trees are to swing swings on.
Trees are for the wind to blow through.
Trees are to hide behind in ‘Hide and Seek.’
Trees are to have tea parties under.
Trees are for kites to get caught in.
Trees are to make cool shade in summer.
Trees are to make no shade in winter.
Trees are for apples to grow on, and pears;
Trees are to chop down and call, “TIMBER-R-R!”
Trees make mothers say,
“What a lovely picture to paint!”
Trees make fathers say,
“What a lot of leaves to rake this fall !”

Working with the Poem
1. What are the games or human activities which use trees,
or in which trees also ‘participate’?
2. (i) “Trees are to make no shade in winter.” What does this
mean? (Contrast this line with the line immediately
before it.)
(ii)“Trees are for apples to grow on, or pears.” Do you
agree that one purpose of a tree is to have fruit on it?
Or do you think this line is humorous?
3. With the help of your partner, try to rewrite some lines in
the poem, or add new ones of your own as in the following
examples.
Trees are for birds to build nests in.
Trees are for people to sit under.
Now try to compose a similar poem about water, or air.
What Are Mangrove Forests?
‘Mangrove’ is the name commonly used for
varieties of shrubs or trees growing in the
muddy swamps of tropical coasts and
estuaries. Mangroves produce tangled roots
that grow above the ground. They produce new
trunks and thus rapidly form a dense growth.
Mangrove timber is impervious to water and is
resistant to marine worms.
