The Tree That Had Legs

I was walking in the woods one day and I saw a tall tree with a pair of legs. I turned around and when I looked back it was gone I couldn’t see it anywhere. Walking quicker I looked out for the tall tree with legs and found it once again. When I got closer I saw it had a face it told me not to be scared but i really was. I asked the tree what its name was the tree said he was called Joe. After that me and Joe where best friends I planted him in our garden and put him near our beautiful pink flowers. He looked very happy their but I wonder why he has leg?
