Once upon a time, there was a small forest and in the center of it was a majestic tree – a cercidiphyllaceae. It was the oldest and most beautiful tree of the entire forest.
The little critters that lived in the forest would take shelter in its huge and comforting branches. No matter the amount of wind, rain, or snow, the cercidiphyllaceae tree was always a calm and peaceful place for them.
One day, a small rabbit decided to take a break from her usual foraging and hopped up the cercidiphyllaceae tree. As she climbed higher and higher, she noticed that the bark of the tree started to change becoming rough and dry. The gradually reaching branches of the tree that were once so full of life were now frail and brittle. She had never seen anything like this before.
The rabbit, being a curious creature, wanted to investigate further and so she hopped her way through the tree’s large canopy. After what seemed like hours of walking, she noticed a big and strange looking object in the middle of the tree. It was a machine – a cutting machine meant to destroy the tree. The rabbit was shocked and scared. Who could have done this to the majestic tree?
The rabbit returned to her home and told her family what she had seen. Her family was devastated and angry. They decided to do something about this. They asked around and finally discovered that the machine was operated by a nearby village. The villagers had been cutting down trees indiscriminately in order to make space for their own buildings.
The rabbit, her family, and all their forest friends gathered up to confront the villagers. They explained the importance of the cercidiphyllaceae tree, how it had been providing shelter to all the creatures of the forest for centuries. They asked them to stop, but the villagers refused.
The creatures of the forest were determined not to give up hope, so they decided to fight back. They all worked together to protect the cercidiphyllaceae tree and eventually, after a long and hard struggle, they won and managed to save the majestic tree.
The moral of this story is that if we all come together, we can protect what we love and save what is important to us. No matter how big or small the struggle, together we can make a huge difference.
