  4. I hope he gets blisters cutting down a 100-year old tree. And I wish the tradition didn't go on: I LOVE trees! So much clearcutting is going on in parts of the world. It's sad for the environment including all the creatures and humans who depend on it for shelter, shade, etc. <3

    1. I agree with you Elly. Actually tree cutting is banned, but people do it secretly. How sad!
