Is tree 'living thing'?

As far as English grammar is concerned, the noun tree is, crudely expressed, a thing rather than a person. We therefore use it rather than he/she and which rather than who. We do the same with animals, and those purring at my feet are certainly living.
The tree itself is living; it is not inanimate.
And for some weaker trees, even a single quat will do.
