The Giving Tree #ThursdayTreeLove 3

Have you read the book ‘The Giving Tree’ by Shel Silverstein?

The 3 photos of a tree here remind me of the story in ‘The Giving Tree.’



I am joining Parul Thakur, this week, with her post for the hashtag #ThursdayTreeLove

If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link up using the linky On Parul’s Post. Let’s come together to appreciate the beautiful nature around us.

  1. Oh my, is the tree gone? I haven’t read ‘The Giving Tree’ but will look for it now.

    What a heartbreaking sight! This is happening all over the cities…we’re losing our best friends in the most heartless way for reasons that only reveal our myopic vision and utter selfishness. The last pic is so telling for what Bangalore is exoeriencing everyday.


  3. Oh no! that’s such a sad sight. I feel sad for the ‘giving tree’ 😦
    I haven’t read the book but would love to pick it up.


  4. Oh and yes – thank you so much for joining!


  5. Such a heartbreaking sight this is. People complain about the abrupt changes in climate, what else can we expect!


  6. Oh no! It’s really and truly gone? What a shame!! 😦


  7. Not read the book but you’ve piqued my curiosity. Also, how terrible that the tree looks cut up that way 😦


  8. No, I haven’t. I want to now. Your post piqued my interest. Why the chopping? Was it interfering with someone’s safety?


  9. How heartbreaking! But not unusual – the city I work in, a couple of years ago, butchered a bunch of trees on a main thoroughfare. And, we have an ash borer insect problem decimating trees. We’ve lost at least one ash tree in our neighborhood. I so nearly took a picture of that stump sticking through snow, but decided not to.


  10. I haven’t read ‘The giving tree’, but the pictures you shared speaks a thousand words about how giving our trees are! it made for a sad picture, indeed! We humans only take from the nature around us; wonder when we will learn to give back!


  11. How awful! What are we about???

    Oh dear. Why did they have to cut it down? Makes me feel sad seeing the big old tree in this sorry state.


  15. Really this is sad picture.
