My favourite childhood tree memory

What is your favourite childhood tree memory?

I remember a tree at the end of our street called Dagbreek Str (Afrikaans for Daybreak Str). My brother and I would join the other kids in our neighbourhood to climb this special tree once we had finished our homework and before we had to head home for a bath, dinner and bed time.

We each had our own special branch that we perched ourselves upon. We peered down onto the road below and dropped the occasional yellow berry on cars driving past. On quiet days, we would just chat and stare up at the higher branches and green leaves as we transcended into a fantasy world like we were characters in ‘The Faraway Tree’.

How devastating would it be if our children and their children had no trees to play in. No special branches, tree houses or zip-lines… that would be a very sad day.

Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen by remembering to give back and reduce our carbon footprint. Please help me to raise trees in support of Greenpop’s Treevolution project. You can donate a tree for R100 / $10 which will go towards planting one of 3500 trees in Zambia in an effort to curb the deforestation. Please support this great cause.

Make sure our children and their children can form their own childhood tree memories in the years to come.
