    Cool cut a tree

    Hello!

    Can we say "to cut a tree"? or do we have to say "to cut down a tree"?

    Thank you

    To cut down a tree means to make it fall onto the ground. To cut a tree could mean that you just make a tree lose its branches, or when the tree is already cut down, you split it up into smaller pieces. This phrase doesn't necessarily mean that the tree is cut down.

    No, my outward appearance is different, but I can't say I wouldn't like to look like that, to be honest.
