Willow trees – or “weeping willows” are found on the banks of rivers where their branches often hang down into the water, thus giving the impression that they are weeping. Of course, what they are in fact doing is sucking up moisture from the river so that they rather cunningly get better fed and can enjoy a healthier existence.
Apple trees are best the most popular type of tree in the world that bears fruit we can eat. This is because apples were considered the “forbidden” fruit in the Book of Genesis in the Bible and it was by tempting Adam with an apple that Eve caused the fall of man. Of course, although an apple is often assumed to be the fruit that tempted Adam, it has been suggested that it was merely symbolic and that it could have been any fruit. Apples are also iconic because they are the logo and name of one of the world’s largest IT companies. Whether the company and the fall of man are related is unproven.
Pine trees are a particular favorite of children because they are – of course – also Christmas trees. At Christmas, we place gifts underneath them and then on Christmas Day unwrap the presents, which is why children have such a fond association with the tree. Part of the whole build up to Christmas centers round the tree and decorating it, with the high bushy branches being very useful for hanging decorations and ornaments from.
