Trees are fucking great and a good replacement for statues. Things trees provide that statues don't include: 1. FUCKING SHADE. I get it, we need the sun but it sure can be a bastard. Unlike a statue, a tree grows and the shade grows with it. 2. Trees provide oxygen and smell good. Statues end up smelling like pee or metal or what the fuck ever that is bad. 3. Can be leaned on to provide rest. Asshole statues get hot as fuck and only radiate more heat. In the cold, statues can get cold and uncomfortable to touch. 4. For the weirdos out there who like to lick or molest shit, you can lick/molest a tree in any season, not so with statues. 5. All statues are some type of propaganda, trees are not. 6. Trees look nice and statues are pretty much ugly, as most people are fugly. 7. Trees help the environment and nature in general, statues help with..... wait, they are like that one asshole friend or relative everyone has, they don't do shit.
