Have you ever planted trees?


(Answer 1)


I’m ashamed to admit this – unfortunately no. I was born and raised in a big city where everything is surrounded by buildings, I’ve been living in a condo since birth. Apparently, we don’t have any space to plant anything. Although I learned the importance of planting trees in school, sadly, I never got the chance to plant one in our school.


(Answer 2)


Yes, I’ve got plenty of opportunities to plant trees since my hometown is mostly agricultural. Besides, when I was a student, our teacher taught us the importance of planting, not just trees, but all kinds of plants. I remember my science teachers always reminded us to plant so we could conserve Mother Earth. 




Admit [verb] – acknowledge; confess

Condo [noun] – condominium 

Conserve [verb] – protect from destruction



Do you like planting trees? Why?


(Answer 1)


Although I haven’t tried experiencing planting trees, I love the idea of planting simply because it’s one of the best ways to improve the condition of our environment. Honestly, I support those environmental organizations who are protecting our Mother Earth, I’ve donated some money to support their advocacy. Well, that’s just one of my ways of protecting the environment since I don’t have any chance to plant trees.


(Answer 2)


Planting trees is one of my obligations as a citizen in this country and I love it. Like I’ve just said, I come from the countryside where all I see is a spectacular view of nature, it’s no wonder for the people who know me, why I’m passionate about planting. 




Advocacy [noun] – a public support for an idea, plan, or a way of doing something

Spectacular [adj.] – beautiful; breathtaking 

No wonder [phrase] – it is not surprising



What kinds of trees do you plant?

(Answer 1)


If I have a chance to experience planting trees, I want to plant fruit-bearing trees such as coconut, mango, apple, and the like. I want those kinds of trees simply because they can provide food for us. It’s always my dream to live in a place where I can produce my own food, one day in the future, I’ll be able to make that a reality.


(Answer 2)


Well, I planted deciduous trees such as oak trees and maple trees when I was a child. And when I was in high school, I experienced planting evergreen trees like eucalyptus and hemlock. Once I have my own piece of land, I’ll surely plant angiosperms like apples and mangoes. 




And the like [phrase] – and similar things 

Deciduous [adj.] – shedding its leaves annually 

Angiosperms [noun] – plants that produce flowers and bear their seeds in fruits 



What kind of trees are popular in your hometown?


(Answer 1)


As I’m living in the metropolitan area, I can’t see lots of trees here, except at the park. There, I see some pine trees, cherry blossom trees, and oak trees. Whenever I spend my free time at the park, I feel so rejuvenated, I think being close to nature or seeing those trees is really healing.


(Answer 2)


Well, let me think…I don’t know, I think the pine trees because wherever I go I can see lots of them but gum trees are also widespread in our hometown. So, I guess both of them are common in our hometown and both of these trees have historical significance in our town. 




Metropolitan [adj.] – relating to a large city 

Rejuvenated [adj.] – re-energized 

Widespread [adj.] – found over a large area
