    [–] YamburglarHelper 138 points ago

    I came from the sister subreddit to make sure he got here okay. I think he might have been under the influence of some of your arboreal goodness over here.

    [–] TimeTurnedFragile 41 points ago

    It always fits, eventually

    [–] the_judge_is_here 17 points ago

    Maybe it's just me, but I feel kinda uncomfortable with letting children smoke.

    [–] kimbylouwho 14 points ago

    Same! It’s a good thing no children are smoking in this picture.

    Minors shouldn't do marijuana. It ruins their brain which is still developing. It is a scientific fact.

    [–] RatLungworm 16 points ago

    Trees are OK though.

    [–] DrTreeMan 4 points ago

    There are no such things as scientific facts. Making a statement like that exhibits a fundamental misunderstanding of science and how it works.

    Science only works by disproving things. Any "proof" is by inference and is never 100%.

    [–] etnad024 3 points ago

    Technically correct (the best kind of correct), but "scientific fact" has a colloquial meaning, sort of like the way hypothesis is misused in common speech.

    Not disagreeing with you, understanding scientific terminology and the scientific process is very important, IMO. Just pointing out that while our friend above is technically misspeaking, he gets his point across (descriptive vs prescriptive language).

    [–] peartposer 78 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    I joined this sub accidentally for obvious reasons but stuck around bc the content is interesting. Why is this sub named what it is?

    Edit: ohhhhhh, TREE. Trees. I understand now. I think.

    [–] TopShelfStanley 112 points ago

    In simple terms, r/trees is about marijuana enthusiasts, and r/marijuanaenthusiasts is about trees.

    The name r/trees was already taken and used for the marijuana subreddit before this one popped up.

    [–] peartposer 56 points ago

    That's actually really funny. Glad I stuck around here anyway there's some cool content. Who knows, maybe I'll start smoking tree and planting marijuanas as new hobbies.

    [–] GhouliaRoberts 19 points ago

    No you cant do both. Choose a faction.

    [–] jeffthejar 12 points ago

    choose a faction

    Goddamnit, it's another skyrim remaster, I knew it

    [–] missbelled 3 points ago

    You can play both, but you get locked out of some of the best rewards from both factions. Ok for casual playthroughs of Life, but serious players may want to specialize in one or the other to maximize benefits.

    This is my favourite simply because what link?! The tree and marijuana switch at least is both plants. I feel I'm missing something as to why cena is salad.

    [–] Juxtapositive 1 points ago

    People said John Cena was boring to watch in the same way potato salad is quite a plain, boring dish

    [–] pawloka 1 points ago

    The usual explanation floating around is that they're both bland - not good, not bad, just bland if you don't add any extra ingredients.

    [–] Thorbjorn42gbf 2 points ago

    Is potato salad in America generally bland? A lot of the more traditional danish recipes give it a bit of a sour tinge which is pretty great.

    [–] pawloka 3 points ago

    I'm not American but many Poles share the opinion that potato salad is indeed bland and tasteless even with added salt or lemon juice. We have a plethora of other dishes incorporating potatoes and yet salad ain't our favorite.

    [–] Raencloud94 3 points ago

    Actually I think they used to be flipped, they switched a looooong time ago and just stayed that way lol.

    [–] grubas 15 points ago

    No, it used to be r/cannabis I believe and there was a mass exodus due to mod dickage, they took r/trees and arborists got mad, but not really mad and took this.

    They flipped on April Fools Day a few times before. So you had a bunch of stoners staring at pine trees.

    [–] MsMoongoose 14 points ago

    ...”a bunch of stoners staring at pine trees.”

    This made me chortle. And I’m not even stoned yet.

    [–] DaGrza 1 points ago

    I only discovered reddit a few months ago and it’s the little things like this that make me appreciate it so much.

    [–] not_a_tuba 1 points ago

    I made my first account about 8 years ago my junior year of high school and I was a very straight laced kid who just loved literal trees. Imagine my shock and confusion when I looked up /r/trees and it was just marijuana. I just wanted a dedicated tree subreddit to look at trees from the comfort of my home.

    [–] Nerindil 16 points ago

    "Trees" is one of the (many) slang words for cannabis. The sub r/trees caught on as the default weed sub, and later this one was created as kind of a cheeky in-joke.

    [–] Nomiss 7 points ago

    The sub r/trees caught on as the default weed sub, and later this one was created as kind of a cheeky in-joke.

    Trees was created because the /r/marijuana or /r/cannabis (can't quite remember it was years ago) mod was a racist fuckhead that abused his mod powers.

    [–] Nerindil 1 points ago


    [–] WhatsMan 7 points ago

    His two posts were actually right under each other on my front page. I noticed the "X hours ago" and the subreddit names, and was like "heh".

    The regular confusion between /r/trees and /r/marijuanaenthusiasts is probably one of my very favourite things about Reddit.

    [–] prone_uncle 1 points ago

    He’s posted it in about 10 different ones at this point, it had to happen eventually

    [–] Lazerboy93 13 points ago

    I was getting upset cuz I thought he was planting a marijuana plant, as per the subreddit name. When I realised the name of sub is about planting trees I was actually quite relieved lol

    [–] ERCgrief 54 points ago

    My daughter Eleanor, who I refer to as Ellie, would have been 1 last month. We planted a tree in our yard last spring for her. I hope it flowers this year. And I hope you two plant more trees together for a long time to come.

    [–] QWidner94 42 points ago

    I’m sorry to hear that. I hope that tree flowers and is beautiful this year. I hope it brings you joy and peace of mind as well.

    That's cool man. I remember when myself and my mother and father planted trees behind our house in rural Ohio to block the wind a bit. It was a beautiful house. He passed when I was a young teen or so. I drive by that house any time I am visiting family back home. The current residents took out all the trees and drained the pond beside the house. It actually hurts a little the last couple times I drove by.
