“Trees are for apples to grow on, or pears.” Do you agree that one purpose of a tree is to have fruit on it? Or do you think this line is humorous?
No, bearing fruits is one of the many purposes of a tree. Trees give shade, shelter birds, purify air, prevent soil erosion, cause rain etc. This line is not humorous since humans are highly dependent on trees for a comfortable living.
