# 2754 Shaking the Tree

Q On question 2738 you wrote: “Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion, as explained by Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a is that one should not leave a chair even slightly leaning on a tree, since this would be considered “mishtamesh beilon” or using a tree. As opposed to one leaning a bit on a tree, that is permitted when the tree does not move or shake, since one has control of his body and can immediately stop inclining on it.” Can one seating on a chair recline slightly on a tree when not moving it since he is in control?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that if he is sitting on the chair he may indeed lean slightly on the tree, if the tree does not move or shake, since after all he is in control of the chair.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a.
