Son: "There's a lot of things in the way in the woods that make it hard to walk around."

Me: "Yeah buddy, that's true in some places"

Son: "What would happen if we cut down all the trees?"

Me: "That's a good question. What do you think we'd have if we cut them down?"

Son: "A lot of stumps and.... THEN WE'D HAVE A BUNCHA PLACES TO SIT! oh... and firewood."

Can you ask him "What do you think we'd not have anymore if we cut them down?"
