2. Yes, this is one of those little teasers where you have to think outside the box. Arrange the trees in a pentagram. There are 5 trees at the vertices, and 5 more where the diagonals intersect. So, draw the lines and you'll see you have 5 intersecting lines, each with 4 trees. Each tree is counted twice.
