The Life of a Tree

Consider the sapling, working overtime to establish roots and gain a foothold in its place.  It's vulnerable, but positively brimming with hope.

The more mature tree is fed by sunlight, air, nutrients in the soil, relying on those roots and shoots to convey what it needs and grow even healthier.

The fully grown tree rubs shoulders with venerable neighbors and maybe even rises above them.  It is still relying on the roots it worked to create as a sapling, but it is now solidly a part of the environment, a respected landmark, a reliable feature in the landscape, sure of its strength and worth.

What kind of tree are you?
