Change a tree

Do all four of these things on, with and about this curious tree.

Mission Information

This Weeping Beech tree is also known as an Upside-down tree, or Fagus sylvatica pendula in Latin. It was popular to plant these 'Trees of Sorrow' in grave yards in the Victorian period. 

There are three parts to this challenge: 
  1. Become a fruit belonging to this tree. 
  2. Make this tree look the 'right way around'. 
  3. Write a poem about this tree using only the letters you can find on it. 
  4. Can you find a way for the tree to climb you..
 Tip: A pen or pencil and some paper will help you with this mission.
Mission Risk: Medium

Medium. Keep your wits about you, anything could happen.

This looks like a great tree to climb but you don't want to get bruised like windfall fruit! Take care of yourself and the tree. Be gentle and keep to the lower branches if you climb on it.
