    pulling

    In Thailand, elephants work in the jungle, pulling large trees.
    Does "pulling" mean "and pull" or anything?

    No, it means that is what they do when they work in the jungle. They help humans by pulling large trees. That is their "job".

    I work in a shop, selling food to people.
    My flatmate works as a photographer, taking pictures of people and places.
    Her father works as an author, writing children's books.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
