We need to have a lot of public and specialized information to write a great essay.

I found very difficult to coincide with other's ideas. For that, for me is very difficult to reference quotes from authors.

i tried to understand “ the trees ” but i couldn’t . So what does it mean ? Tks a lot !

Hello Khuyen
What the professor means is that sending him your essay by email is better for the environment than handing in your essay printed on paper. The idea is that paper is made from trees, and if people don't use paper, that means fewer trees will be cut down to make more paper.
Does that make sense?
All the best
