You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
First, draw the roots of the tree. Draw two diagonal lines slightly apart. Draw two lines spaced up and down, right next to your last lines. Continue this about three more times but make sure that the first line of the origin connects to the last line of the origin that you just drew. You should have a small stream of these roots.
Now draw the trunk. Draw a straight line going up from the first origin you drew. Draw another line going up but this time from the top of the last origin you drew.
Then it’s time to draw the branches. Draw two long wavy lines from the top of the trunk. Add small spikes to the end of the two wavy lines connecting them. This is a branch. Keep doing this until you have as many branches as you want.
The last thing to do is draw the leaves. Start from one of the branches and draw a very small line from the branch. Draw three small spikes out of the line you just drew. Now you have a day off! Repeat this step around the different branches to create as many leaves as you want.
