In my opinion a tree is alive. To put it simpy it is alive because it can die. When you cut a tree down it's leaves will fall off and it will eventually decompose and become part of the earth again. While a rock for example can not die, or change unless altered by natural forces or human interaction. A tree is alive, plants are just less complex then mammals or other multicellular organisms that move or have " free will".

"I said a tree is not alive because in order to be alive you must have freewill" That's not the definition of alive or living to anyone other than you, you realize? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life Fetuses are aborted before they have the capacity for suffering or awareness. They are alive, but they are not persons.

All are sentient. A tree has no free will that we recognise or can therefore acknowledge a such. Animals have no free will for they live by full-on instinct (apart from dolphins) as far a we know and cannot think for only thought can oppose instinct. A foetus has no free will that she or he can use- it`s proven that the foetus can respond to all stimuli with normal human responss and is `imprinted` also by extreme impressios. I hope this is of positive help to you. lol

'Alive' and 'aware' can be two different things. (The first does not require the second.) Then there is the third: 'self aware' that is part of our definition of a human intelligence. IMHO the early fetus is the first but neither the second nor the third.
