This tree has chosen you as its caretaker. You will have to tend to all its needs: water, nutrients, fend off attackers, help it grow its leaves and roots, etc…

Along the way, there will be challenges: diseases, humans, shadow from other trees, volcano clouds, and droughts

But in the end, you’ll have a beautiful, unique tree that you can share with friends, and hopefully some new knowledge about the secret life of trees
