The 40 Very Best Tree Puns

The 40 Very Best Tree Puns

Keep reading for plenty of tree-based jokes and puns that will definitely twig your interest!

Join us as we log on (get it?) and take a deep dive into 40 tree puns and one-liner jokes that are so good, they should have rings on them (see what I did there?). Going through these one by one, you’ll be laughing so hard that you wet your trunks. Trees are an essential part to our very existence, just like the sound and feeling of ruptuous laughter, so we (being the clever c-logs that we are) decided “Why not combine them both?” and so we bring you 40 (yes 40!) of the very best tree jokes and puns that will leave you all in disbe-leaf!

But first, we encourage everyone to take a few moments to appreciate the amazing ecosystem this planet has, and the major role that trees and other plant life have in creating that. Deforestation is a major issue at the moment, so we ask everyone (even though it might not be the “poplar” thing to do at the moment. Sorry couldn’t resist) to go out and plant a single tree and play a small part in keeping our environment beautiful for the next generation of tree pun lovers!
