You can lean on trees

You can lean on trees

You can lean on a tree if you’re tired
You can shelter from rain and the sun
You get oxygen you need to live from the trees
You can swing on, and climb them, for fun

Trees filter pollutants out of the air
Trees combat the changes in climate
Trees would provide perfect wildlife homes
If we would just let nature define it.

You can lean on trees
