    I think I'd be a palm tree. If this question allowed for plants in general, I'd be a ficus. But since it's just trees, I'm definitely picking "palm." You know why. :D

      I'd be something solid. Like a redwood, so I could stand by my gf while she's goin through med school. I know she's going to need a lot of support and I just hope I can be there through it all, like that Sherman Redwood.

        see, I would have said you'd be something like a maple, especially if it's a tree right next to a parking lot so birds can crap out of and onto the cars below

        me, I'd be a pine tree, prickly and highly flammable........

          I would be a weeping willow...right by a pond of water with beautiful white swans. A willow providing shade to happy couples in love from the glaring summer sunlight.

          "Botanists would probably agree that, among flowering plants and trees, there is not a more puzzling group than the Willows. Though of comparatively recent introduction, there is no Willow as popular and familiar, from its exceptional form and beauty, as the Babylonian, or "Weeping" species."

          ( Aside, I am a "puzzling" person too LOL!)

          "The Weeping Willow, on the contrary, rather conveys a picture of the grief felt for the loss of the departed than of the darkness of the grave. Its light and elegant foliage flows like the disheveled hair and graceful drapery of a sculptured mourner over a sepulchral urn, and conveys those soothing, though melancholy reflections that made the poet write--

          (Aside, my hair tend to be disheveled too LOL!)

          "'Tis better to have lov'd and lost,
          Than never to have lov'd at all.'"

          In the Elizabethean times , it was the symbol of forsaken love.

            I would be a mango tree so I can provide both shade and food during. Or may be an apple tree due to the same reason.
