The Last Tree

The Last Tree by Mark Wilson


The Last Tree is a story about a beautiful eucalyptus tree. It was tall and strong and had orchids that clung to its branches. Many small animals lived in the tree. Sadly over time the trees that surrounded it were cut down as the city buildings were crowding in closer and closer. The destruction of the forest and loss of habitat leave us feeling helpless until one small seed bursts from the pod and is carried away where it begins to grow and grow.

I am shocked to believe that this could happen that we could lose our beautiful world due to deforestation. I am upset that people choose to keep destroying our world.

I love to see nature reserves filled with birds, animals and small creatures, safe from the destruction of their habitat. It is up to all of us to help recreate the environment. We can all plant seeds, make vegetable gardens and compost.
