Save Our Trees
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     People in a small town were fighting over the forest. Why? A builder wanted to cut down lots of trees. Some people felt this was OK. Some did not.
 
2     Danny asked his father, "Why are people upset about cutting down the trees? They grow back."
 
3     "They do if you plant some more. This builder is not promising to do that," Dad said.
 
4     "So," Danny said, "there are lots of trees around. Anyway, he will use wood from trees to build houses. We need to cut down trees for that."
 
5     "You are right," Dad said. "We need trees for lumber and paper. So many trees are being cut down, though, that we are losing other things, too."
