He sent hundreds of wood-cutters all over the forest to find such a tree. The wood-cutters looked everywhere. At last, they found a tall and magnificent sal tree in the middle of the forest. The wood cutter got ready to cut down the tree. The tree grew very sad that it would die the next day. That night the tree spoke to the king in his dream. It said to him,

“O King! Can you tell your wood-cutters to cut me in parts. First my top branches then my middle branches and then the trunk?”

The king was surprised. “Why?” he asked. The tree told him, “If they cut me at one stroke, might fall on the other trees and hurt them. So cut me limb by limb. It will spare the other tree being hurt”.
