A Tree Poem

A little poem I put together, inspired by Duncan Slater.
My roots are my lungs I need to breath, compacted and trodden makes me wheeze. Food I get from the leaves I supply, remove too much might make me die. The trunk that gives me a majestic view, does not like a nail or screw. The branches and twigs that bend and sway, are designed to move and flow that way.
The dog wee, the concrete the to name a few, the membrane and pebbles avoid them too. Christmas lights, pigeon spikes old cd’s keep them off me oh pretty please. Enjoy my size for it has taken so long, cutting me in half is terribly wrong. Topped and lopped I’m a sorry old sight, with stubs and tears please feel my plight
Enjoy the labours of my being, the shade I give or flowers worth seeing. Carbon dioxide, I can breathe it all in. I give you oxygen, call it a win! I can increase the value of your dwelling, history I’ve seen is something worth telling. From ships to furniture I’m a useful soul, the benefits I give to reach your goal.
So please don’t abuse or take the rise, for I can be a pleasant surprise. I will watch over children as they grow and provide them a future, I’m sure you know. We cannot live without trees on this earth, even Christ wasn’t alive at the time of their birth.
So, enjoy us, love us, treat us well. We want to live on this earth as well.

  • 5 star review  Recently Evoke Tree Services pruned my apple and pear trees for the second time, and cut my hedges back for the first time. I would highly recommend these lads who did a superb job and cleaned up all the cuttings afterwards. Nothing was too much trouble and I look forward to having them return next season for the same pruning. Laura, WGC.

  • 5 star review  I would highly recommend Evoke Tree Services. The guys did an excellent job cutting down a large Apple tree, that was dangerously leaning over, and grinding the stump away. They were professional, polite and it was great to see workmen following safety procedures and tidying up so well after themselves.

  • 5 star review  Amazing service from Evoke from start to finish! We had a number of very large and unmanageable laurel bushes growing in the garden which required a significant amount of work done to them to bring them back to a nice size. The work was completed promptly and to a fantastic standard; highly recommended!

  • 5 star review  We would highly recommend this very professional team. We had a very large, overbearing larch tree which needed to be removed and asked a number of companies for quotes. Evoke not only came in with the best quote but we were very impressed with the skill levels shown and as we watched as the tree was taken down, we saw a team who obviously looked after their tools and vehicles extremely well, worked with safety always at the forefront, communicated well and did an extremely efficient job finishing with everything cleaned and tidied up. We would have no hesitation in using them again.
