Tree-Killer
  • n. [Sun] A printer. 2. A person who wastes paper. This epithet should be interpreted in a broad sense; `wasting paper' includes the production of spiffy but content-free documents. Thus, most suits are tree-killers. The negative loading of this term may reflect the epithet `tree-killer' applied by Treebeard the Ent to the Orcs in J. R. R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" (see also elvish, elder days).
