the love of trees in movies — we are groot!

Groot was such a terrific character in Guardians of the Galaxy. Even with his many variations on his one line of dialogue, "I am Groot!", he was able to become lovable and memorable. How did a walking, talking tree capture viewers hearts?

The wonderful Groot got me thinking about some other fun talking trees in movies through the years. Kids and adults alike love to climb trees and sit under them and dream — when they come to life on screen maybe we can't help but love them.
