Visit your tree friend often. Take a little time to get to know it. Meditate together, focusing on the exchange of breath.
A wonderful quote by Thích Nhất Hạnh provides a lovely illustration of agaya "...I looked into the tree and I saw the whole cosmos in it..." Another expresses ubuntu "We are all the leaves of one tree. We are all the waves of one sea; the time has come for all to live as one."
