Re-born as a tree

 Tree (landscape)
Whether you believe in Reincarnation or think you will be standing before St. Peter’s Gate, please read this article and take this poll.

I will skip the obvious question such as would you like to come back as the same gender or try the other one on.

Instead I assumed that I did not make it back as a human at all, but as a plant or other animal. Considering loss and extinction of flora, God may simply decide that coming back as an animal is off the table.

Failing that order of animal re-incarnation, we are left the plant world. Am I to be an Oak, a Eucalypti or a Willow? Or am I doomed to be a sub-shrub? A Mahonia or God forbid as a short lived weed.To make it simple I defaulted to a few tree packages I rather like. If you can, please add a comment afterwards. Plug your own favorite tree or plug me for a choice I did not make! Magnolia or American Chestnut come to mind. Just remember:

THE TREE OF LIFE IS FULL OF LIMBS. With that in mind I give you TWO choices.

The Tree I would most be comfortable being

I still remember him performing at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz. Warm memories.Since I also picked “I am so scrumptious’ Kate Wolf ‘The Lilac and and the Apple tree.’  A singer who left this realm far to early.

  1. Not really covered but this question could equally apply to the Green Burial movement and which tree would you like to nourish.
    I forget the person but a famous Scottish botanist had a Chestnut planted over his grave. That university did the right thing by him.
