Characters
Ulrich Von Gradwitz: A wealthy landowner who is hating on Georg for crossing his land. Ulrich's grandfather had a famous lawsuit in the past in which he opposed Georg's grandfather for illegal possession of land. This causes a feud between their two families for three generations. During the story, he forgets about the grudge he has with Georg and starts to be friendly by offering him wine.

Georg Znaeym: Comes from a line of small landowners and refused to accept judgement of courts regarding disputed piece of land. Georg refers to Ulrich's land as a "Stolen Forest". He later accepts Ulrichs friendship and live the lives they had left as friends.


Conflicts
Man vs. Self- When Ulrich and Georg are both trapped under the tree, each man thinks to himself and decides to forgive and make peace with the other

.
Man vs. Fate-The situation is fateful because it's inevitable. There is nothing either of them could've done to save themselves from the perfectly timed falling of a tree in a dark forest.
Man vs. Man- This part is obvious as it states in the story they are bitter and long-time rivals.
Man vs. Environment- The tree, weather and pack of wolves are antagonists for our protagonists and they are all part of our setting's environment.
Ulrich Von Gradwitz is patrolling his woodland borders to keep his neighboring enemy, Georg Znaemy away. The land was kept the subject of a lawsuit between both their grandfathers. Each family illegally claims the land.
