If you were a tree, how would you life be different in your backyard than in the wilderness? (Tree’s point of view)

I see plenty more animals and less people in the wilderness than in someone’s backyard. In the wilderness, I’m allowed to grow as many branches as I want without someone cutting them off because they’re in the way. Freedom is not something I have in a backyard.

What freedoms does the wilderness offer you that you might not have at home?

Here I’m at peace. I don’t hear any cars or people calling my name. I learn new things.
