The Forest for the Trees


I can’t help myself. I love word games and teasers. Recently I stumbled onto the braingle.com website. I was particularly taken with the language type teasers. Will share a few, but they are straight from the braingle site. Nothing added by me.

In each sentence the name of a tree is hidden. The willow is hiding in the first sentence. Can you find the others?

  1. I will owe you a favor if you drive me to the airport.
  2. I am afraid of going up in elevators.
  3. Drinking cocoa keeps me warm on long winter nights.
  4. I hope the map leads us to buried treasure.
  5. “Eat another bonbon,” said our charming hostess.
  6. Nepal may be the most interesting place I have ever visited.
  7. Remember to fold the map, please.
  8. I feel many lumps in this mattress.
  9. Word processing is not as useful as pens and paper for creative brainstorming.


  1. willow
  2. pine
  3. oak
  4. maple
  5. bonsai
  6. palm
  7. apple
