The Once-lers were chopping down all of the trufulla trees! The Lorax, who was guardian of the forest felt furious and broken hearted. Everything was destroyed! The old Once-ler was sad about what he had done and gave Ted the very last trufulla tree seed. He told him to plant it in the middle of town, to make people care about trees again. The people started to sing "let it grow." The felt ecstatic!
