Is this like saying "Count me in!" in English?

So the tree would say "tæl os med!" and someone would respond "Okay, træerne tælles med."?

The translation is a bit weird.
At tælle med (or at medtælle) means 'to count along'. So, say they are trying to make a statistic about ...shrubbery around a garden, and there are one or two trees among them. And someone would ask "Do we count those, too?" And yep, the trees shall be counted in.

Why 'counted in'?

Isn't that how you would express this concept in English? Count in, count along, something? Probably "count as well".

No. We just say count

Could you give a couple of sentences as context?

The trees are counted (also)?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RyagonIV

I think "The trees also count" would be pretty good.

Hvad med "The trees also count."?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RyagonIV

Jeg tror at det ogsa ville være en god oversættelse.
