On killing a tree - how does the poet create a feeling of sadness in the poem?

Dear Student,
Given below is the answer to your question.

The poet creates a sadness in the poem through the language used. 
For example - It takes much time to kill a tree, not a simple jab of the knife will do it.
The process is described slowly and one can picture the killing of the tree through the imagery used. 
Example - bleeding bark; root is to be pulled out; strength of the tree exposed etc.

I hope you find this answer helpful. Please post more questions on the forum to be assisted by our team.
Thank you.
