Martina wrote “Trees, trees” originally in German as a language learning song and adapted it for English. We sing it with my choir indoors and outdoors and use card board protest signs which have the slogan like lyrics of each section written on them (see video). It’s ideal to be sung on a climate change march, especially in the woods. It
also looks great when the signs go up and down. Even just singing one section of the song can work in this context.
It’s also suitable for early language learning “learn English with songs” as it’s not very wordy.
