In a world where trees vie to be perfect so they can be chosen as THE Christmas Tree of the Year (and act rather human, I'm sad to say), one tree instead offers shelter to the animals of the forest, and in the process is damaged and worn. In the end however, the tree's goodness is more important than it's outward perfection.
Great story. Doesn't stand up under scrutiny, but so what. It will make you tear up, and that's ok.
