"Trees and flowers cannot care, so why should we?" "Nothing matters to a tree, but much is vital to it."  As to these famous quotes, there is reason to believe that: (a) The tree exists, however, what is vital to it, that does not exist; "what is vital" to it refers to its essential nature of striving to accomplish itself - as well as it can - and become as good a tree as possible, under existing conditions that permit the tree to flourish; (b) "Nothing matters to a tree," however, much matters to us; trees are not sentient, we are.  Therefore, virtue ethics argues that we have the right to do as we please to the (non-feeling) tree; (c) "Nothing matters to a tree." Trees do not - cannot - make decisions.  We are capable of making decisions; therefore, virtue ethics argues that we have the moral right to decide to do as we like to things that cannot make decisions - like trees; (d) All the above; (e) None of the above.
