There is no behind of a tree, thus you cannot stand behind a tree. If the tree decides it has a backside, ask it. Just make sure no one is around... :D -PKT

Is there more to this question? Or is this a deeply philosophical probing into perceptions and spatial relationships?

Wait until you have to 'answer nature's call', find a tree, when you have found the the spot to do your thing- that's the back of the tree!

Simple to solve ! - a. Stand facing the tree. b. Stick one leg out - Like a branch. c. Position your monkey on the other side (Didn't I mention the monkey before ?) d. Ask the monkey. You know it makes sense.

If you get near the tree and you are facing the tree you are behind it, if your back is to the tree you are in front of it. If the tree is next to you're shoulder (either one) then you are beside it. Simple enough?

When you know that some third person, place, or thing is on the other side of the tree, in front of it.

the tree will lean ever so slightly towards the light. I choose to believe the tree 'faces' the sun, thus if you are in the shadow, you are behind it. Notable exception is when the tree looks directly overhead at midday at the equator - that tree suffers from a paradoxical quandry.

When you can sense the tree in front of you.
