Trees are amazing.  Plants that make us feel like ants, and yet they exhibit qualities that feed our souls.  Not only do they give us oxygen, and we would not survive without them, but their strength, beauty, resilience, and hardiness are encouraging.  Tree tattoos have become incredibly popular, as they have such an organic and life-like appeal as a piece of art, and the various types of trees can mean many different things to different people.  Fir trees and evergreens are a popular choice for tattoos, growing to great heights, and lasting for generations. The symmetry of a pine tree for example can be quite pleasing to the eye when shown in a drawing.  Another aspect of trees is that they provide shade, shelter, and structure to animals and people, and they are also a life-source of fruit and food.   With literally thousands of species of trees, mankind has always found new uses for trees from medicinal solutions to using it’s bark and wood for paper and tools.   Man and tree cannot survive without each other.
