Chitrangada likes to express her creative mind by writing fiction and poetry.They reflect her mood and are inspired by the beauty of Nature.

The Trees are our lifeline.

Have you ever imagined, where we would we be, without the trees.

The Trees are admired for their beauty, their shade, their usefulness to us, human beings. But there are countless other benefits of the trees, which we can’t even imagine.

The Trees provide habitat to the birds and other creatures.

The Trees absorb the Carbon dioxide and other harmful gases from the atmosphere and release Oxygen, which is so essential for our life.

The green colour of the trees, provides calmness and is soothing for the eyes.

The Trees reduce pollution and play an important role in binding the soil.

A Poem:

While walking past the trees,

My eyes curiously see,

Who had planted thee,

To give shelter to me,

And a thought occurs to me,

To plant a little tree,

For my great-grandkids to see.

I love taking pictures, while walking in the morning or evening. Here are some beautiful tree photographs, clicked by me, along with some Tree quotes.

To Conclude:

The trees represent life. Not only are they beautiful gifts of the Mother Nature, but also they are the lifeline to us, the human beings and many other creatures of the earth.

They are necessary for our survival, for shade, food, clean water and clean air.

The least we can do for our future generations is, not to cut the trees unnecessarily and plant more and more trees.

Trees are the Earth’s endless efforts, to speak to the listening heaven.

—Rabindranath Tagore.

        I am glad that you liked my photographs. That Banyan tree is within the premises of an ancient temple. The temple dates back to the eleventh century or so. The tree must be several hundred years old indeed. I took this picture, some three years ago. Sorry, don’t remember the exact figure.

        Thanks for reading and commenting on this article. Good day to you.

        I am sorry to know about your walnut tree and I wish you all the best for reviving it. May be there is some way to save it. You are right about the symbolism attached to these wonderful walnut trees and their importance for good health.

        "This huge tree that has fallen after a century revives our soil for the new, it gives it's life for other trees". Someone wrote that after his best friend tree had been broken by the wind.

        Your words brings tears to my eyes. "A man who is not moved by the majesty of a tree, needs some other help."

        Thanks my fine lady friend.

        Chitrangada, what a wonderful all-around article. I loved your poem and your photos of the trees are wonderful. I am always enthralled by the banyan tree.The quotes were also great to read. Trees are so valuable to the Earth and without them, pollution would spiral out of control, natural habitats destroyed, and life on the planet would slowly die

        Chitrangada, your photos are wonderful. We are currently lamenting our walnut tree which is showing al the signs of dying. It was one of the reasons we bought the house, and when we moved in, we found the previous owner had put down an immense amount of weed killer and it's very poorly. Walnut trees have so much symbolism due their longevity so we're really sad.
