I would call my story Regrowth. My tree story starts in my parents' backyard. There was always this really old cherry tree. It was really big; it was perfect for climbing. I would spend hours up in it as a kid, and I was really attached to this cherry tree. Eventually, I think it got diseased and it had to be chopped down.  I was absolutely distraught about it, but from the stump of the tree there was actually this little sprout of a little sapling, or seedling, and I was really upset and I told my dad don't cut it down, don't mow it, be careful with it! And today that little, little, sapling has grown up to be a really big cherry tree right in the same spot that that tree was in.
