About On Killing a Tree: The poem 'On Killing a Tree' was one of the poem of his poetry collection named 'Poems' published in 1966. This collection was launched by Nissim Ezekiel. Most of Patel's poems center on the human body. 'On Killing a Tree', too, is one such poem. The Setting of On Killing a Tree: The poem is set on a very visual plane. The descriptions are vivid and the mood is sad. There also hangs a sense of darkness upon the poem. The pain felt by the trees, as imagined by Patel, dominates the mood of the poem.
