The Tree’s Story:

Ancient trees stand upon the lands that were once pristine. Perhaps it was a forest? Or maybe even a lake? The trees witnessed human innovation: infrastructures built; concrete paths laid out; artificial grass replacing real grass marked by clear boundaries, such as the fence of the soccer field etc. And what have the trees become? Maybe decoration for humanity, or a purely functional machine to provide us fresh air to breathe. Whatever its purpose is, the trees definitely are not left alone, and will not be left alone to nature. To some extent, we could even say that humans have taken nature as hostage, using it for our own pleasure, but is it truly worth it? To find out what the place once has been, we must seek the answer from nature itself, only if it could speak.
