Everything is true apart from being able to make quick decisions. I'm very indecisive and wishy washy. :D
I particularly love getting unexpected presents. :yes:

I'm a Cedar too, although I disagree about looking down on others, and I definitely can't make quick decisions (or can I? maybe. well, not today, but sometimes, it's possible I guess...... :lol: )

Fun!

If I had to guess, I'd have said a Nut Tree, but I'm okay with a Pine Tree. Seems pretty accurate:

loves agreeable company, craves peace and harmony, loves to help others...
not fashion conscious...low self esteem, needs affection and reassurance.

Hum...not fashion conscious...that may be a bit of an understatement! :D

What about someone born on February 29? Don't they get a tree?

Had to put in my 2 cents. Elm here and only partly true to me.

Hi!

Great thread, Ruth! :D

I'm a Hazlenut Tree:

Hazelnut Tree (Extraordinary) -- charming, sense of humor, very
demanding but can also be very understanding, knows how to make a lasting
impression, active fighter for social causes and politics, popular, quite
moody, sexually oriented, honest, a perfectionist, has a precise sense of
judgment and expects complete fairness.

Most of it is true except for the popular part...all my stuff says that, but I never have been. I'm too much of an individualist to follow the crowd and belong. ;)

DH is an Elm Tree, but it doesn't fit him at all, I think. :chin:

Geez, Beachgal. I just checked out my DH's and it fits him perfectly!

Walnut Tree here. Pretty acruate.

Walnut Tree (Passion) -- unrelenting, strange and full of contrasts,
often egotistic, aggressive, noble, broad horizon, unexpected reactions,
spontaneous, unlimited ambition, no flexibility, difficult and uncommon
partner, not always liked but often admired, ingenious strategist,
very jealous and passionate, no compromise.

It got my DH down perfectly! He is a Chestnut.

Chestnut Tree (Honesty) -- of unusual stature, impressive,
well-developed sense of justice, fun to be around, a planner, born
diplomat, can be irritated easily, sensitive of others feelings, hard
worker, sometimes acts superior, feels not understood at times, fiercely
family oriented, very loyal in love, physically fit.
We're both Scorpios but pretty different. That nailed it. Pretty cool. :D
