Synopsis

See how trees can be difficult! Find out why marketers emphasize that products have been made from wood felled in thinning the forest, and discover the thinking behind thinning forests at all. Then explore figurative uses of 伐 in terms about savage behavior, punitive expeditions to subjugate rebels, and the conquest of other countries. Also learn about a Japanese Robin Hood!

Revision history:

Nov. 29, 2016: I made several edits to an anecdote on p. 8. The changes have nothing to do with kanji. I just wanted to tell a personal story a little bit better.
