All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

People wrote thousands of love emails to trees

The city of Melbourne assigned trees email addresses so citizens could report problems. Instead, people wrote thousands of love letters to their favorite trees.

I'm so sorry you're going to die soon. It makes me sad when trucks damage your low hanging branches. 

To: Algerian Oak, Tree ID 1032705, 2 February 2015: 

Thank you for giving us oxygen. Thank you for being so pretty.

To: Green Leaf Elm, Tree ID 1022165, 29 May 2015: 

I don't think that there is much more to talk about as we don't have a lot in common, you being a tree and such. But I'm glad we're in this together.

Do trees have genders? I hope you've had some nice sun today.

Carl Sagan

A sharp distinction between humans and “animals” is essential if we are to bend them to our will, make them work for us, wear them, eat them–without any disquieting tinges of guilt or regret. It is unseemly of us, who often behave so unfeeling toward other animals, to contend that only humans can suffer. The behavior of other animals renders such pretensions specious. They are just too much like us.

Fruits

In botany, a fruit is the seed-bearing structure in flowering plants (for example, cherries, berries, bean pods, corn kernels, tomatoes, grains). "Fruit" normally means the fleshy seed-associated structures of a plant that are sweet or sour, edible in the raw state (apples, grapes, lemons, strawberries, etc). 

Edible fruits have propagated with the movements of humans and animals in a symbiotic relationship as a means for seed dispersal and nutrition. Humans and many animals have become dependent on fruits as a source of food.
