Short Stories for kids on importance of trees

Once upon a time, in a forest, there lived a tree. Every day, a boy used to come and play around the tree, until one day he stopped coming. The tree was depressed because it missed the boy's laughter and delight.

Years passed, and the boy eventually returned to the wilderness. The tree was overjoyed and said to the boy, "Come back to me, play with me, climb up my trunk and swing from my branches, eat my apples, and play in my shade, be happy again." The boy, on the other hand, stated that he was too busy for such things.

He requested money from the tree, but the tree only had apples. The boy collected the apples and sold them for money.

Years passed, and the boy returned, wanting a house to keep him warm. He went on to say, "I want a wife and children, and I need a house for that." The tree offered to have its branches chopped off and used to build the boy's house because it was generous.

The child stayed away for a long time before returning, but this time he wanted a boat so he could sail away. With a sorrowful heart, the tree volunteered to let the kid chop down its trunk to create a boat, and the boy agreed.

After a long time, the kid returned, and the tree remarked, "I'm sorry, Boy, but I have nothing left to give you." "My apples have vanished." The youngster said that he was too old for apples and that his teeth were too weak for them.

"My branches are gone," she murmured. "You cannot swing on them anymore." "I'm too old to swing on branches now," the youngster said.

"My trunk is gone, you can't climb anymore," the tree continued. "I am too tired to climb," the youngster said, "I need to rest."

"Well, an old stump can still be a good place to sit and rest," the tree straightened up as much as she could. Come, Boy, take a seat and rest." And the boy did exactly that. He sat and rested on the ancient stump, and the tree was content, knowing that she could still help the youngster in some manner.

Moral of the story:

The trees and mother earth in general are very giving to human beings. They are also unconditionally giving. As human beings we must ensure that we plant more trees and give back to mother nature.
