FURTHER UPROOTED VERSE: More Limericks About TREES*

WORDPLAY post #173

SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, May 2019. Some of the verses presented here have  been published (a few are still under review) at OEDILF.com, an online humour dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited limericks. Thanks are due to OEDILF contributing-editor MikeAq who kindly provided a verse for the present collection. 
WORDPLAY LINK: An earlier collection of illustrated poems on this theme was published as wordplay post #161 here. These arboreal posts also pick up on themes discussed in the earlier post "Sappy Verse", that has themes related to the Joyce Kilmer poem.
SONGLINK: For those readers who like poetry set to music: You can find lots of singable limerick-medleys on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE", such as this recent post. There is some intriguing connection between some of these verses about trees and the themes of the singable lyrics blogpost "Delights of the Garden".

Palmettos, native trees growing along the southeastern
and Gulf coastlines of the United States, are also distributed
and planted in the temperate portions of the country further
west; their particular role in South Carolina is discussed in
verses in the post “Limericks About Trees”.
