Because it is furthest from the bark.

A Swallow

What tree will keep you warm.

San Francisco Bay Area

Woodchopper's Applause- Shout, "Chop, chop, chop, timber.

Mt. Diablo Silverado Area Council

(Need: one person, the M.C. a handful of leaves)
(As the M.C. is talking, the man runs in, skipping and tossing the leaves one by one into the air. The sillier his actions, the better.)

M.C.: What are you doing?
Man: I'm leafing!

What's the difference between an oak tree and a tight shoe?
One makes acorns, the other makes corn ache.

What tree does everyone carry with them?

York Adams Council

Someone comes running across the stage yelling and screaming "Help! Help! They're after me!" To which someone responds "Who's after you? And why?" The reply, "The squirrels! They think I'm nuts!"

York Adams Council

Lumberjack Applause: Swing ax as if chopping down a big tree and say "Chop, chop, chop." Then stop, stand back raising hand to mouth to form megaphone, and shout "Timmm-berrrr!"

Paul Bunyan Applause: Make motions as if sawing down a tree. Meanwhile alternately blowing out and sucking in air with a "Shhh" sound. After a few of these you have cut though the tree. Stand back, and with your hand alongside your mouth, yell "Timberrrrr!"

Rainstorm Applause: Start by gently patting hands on knees alternately to simulate rain falling. Increase the noise by switching to hand clapping as the storm reaches its height. With a hand signal, everyone shouts "Boom!" to represent thunder. Gradually decrease the hand clapping back to patting the knees as the storm subsides.

Big Rain Applause: Tap fingers together very quickly.
