What does the poet asked us to do to a tree to kill it? Do you find an element of irony in it

Dear Student,

In the poem 'On Killing A Tree', the poet is trying to sensitise the reader about killing trees. He uses the element of irony to tell the reader that the only way a tree can die is by uprooting it completely from the surface of the earth. He also compares the killing of a tree to that of a man. The sap of a dying tree is similar to a man bleeding when he is killed. Thus, we can say that the poet condemns the destruction of trees.
