Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Here it is the best I can compile from the internet and keep it simple in general.  
Seems to be best played using bar chords on the G & A.  Enjoy

D F# C#m A E G A Bm

         D             F#               C#m              A
There is unrest in the forest; there is trouble with the trees
        E                G        A       Bm
For the Maples want more sunlight and the Oaks ignore their pleas

D F# C#m A E G A Bm

D A Bm F# G

    A                Bm                 G       D               A
The trouble with the Maples and they're quite convinced they're right
             A                 Bm             G       D        A
They say the Oaks are just too lofty and they grab up all the light.
        A                     Bm               G        D           A
But the Oaks can't help their feelings if they like the way they're made
         F#                             G                     A G F# E
And they wonder why the Maples can't be happy in their shade

         D              F#              C#m                A
There is trouble in the forest, and the creatures all have fled
       E             G          A       Bm
as the Maples scream Oppression and the Oaks just shake their heads

D F# C#m A E G A Bm

(it goes into a bunch of craziness here in 5/4 time that I'm going to leave out.  
Instead I play the D A Bm F# G progression again)

       A               Bm        G        D     A
So the Maples formed a union and demanded equal rights
      A                 Bm              G         D       A
These Oaks are just too greedy, we will make them give us light
            A       Bm                       G        D     A
Now there's no more Oak oppression, for they passed a noble law
        F#                          G                 A
And the trees are all kept equal by hatchet, axe, and saw
