What do we plant?

by the American author, Henry Abbey (1842-1911)

What do we plant when we plant the tree?
We plant the ship, which will cross the sea.
We plant the mast to carry the sails;
We plant the planks to withstand the gales --
The keel, the keelson, and the beam and knee;
We plant the ship when we plant the tree.

What do we plant when we plant the tree?
We plant the houses for you and me.
We plant the rafters, the shingles, the floors.
We plant the studding, the lath, the doors,
The beams, and siding, all parts that be;
We plant the house when we plant the tree.

What do we plant when we plant the tree?
A thousand things that we daily see;
We plant the spire that out-towers the crag,
We plant the staff for our country┤s flag,
We plant the shade, from the hot sun free;
We plant all these when we plant the tree.

Hello Nebal,
I do not know a site for exactly cedar trees, but I know one which contains activities, lesson plans about trees in general. Have a look!!
I hope these resources are useful for you. Maybe you have to adapt them for your students but I think they are great!!
