What would your world be like without trees? Many trees may grow near your home or you may live in an area where trees few and far between. Either way, it's likely that trees have played an important part in the history of your country. Trees often become the walls of our homes and schools. Sometimes they fuel industries and manufacturing. Most likely trees have inspired people in your land to write poetry and paint works that capture the beauty or importance of your country's trees.

These Trees - a global gallery

In addition, trees frequently symbolise such things as growth and learning. This is why we use a tree to represent the Teachers Talking Web site. In These Trees, students from around the world can explore and express what local trees mean to them.

Instructions for Taking Part
