The usefulness of uselessness. A tree that seems suitable for making furniture will be chopped down, yet a tree that is deemed unsuitable will be regarded as "useless" and survives. However, the tree may in fact have other purposes such as providing shade and benefiting the ecosystem. Hence, it may actually be more useful. This story hopes to inspire people to look at things we already know about in different perspectives instead of only making assumptions.
