Jack makes an unusual friend - a fig tree in the Carlton Gardens.  


Jack finds out that Nick is very lonely and longs to be planted next to his friend Gertrude, another fig tree down the path.  When Jack gives Nick the idea to walk, he pulls himself up by the roots and lumbers up the path!  The park rangers try to stop him, hooking him up to a crane. But with the help of Jack, creatures and birds, Nick finally reaches Gertrude and plants himself next to her.
