What is the story of "The Lorax"?

“A group of innocent young people, playing in the woods, stumble upon a monument with the word “Unless” on it. They are disturbed by an irritable person named The Once-ler who lives high above them in a tree, alone. He can’t tell them what “Unless” means because he doesn’t know. But he tells them the story that led him to this lonely existence.
He was a child of the Once-ler Family. He did his best to work and bring money into the family, but didn’t really shape up. The family threw him out to rent his room for more money than the Once-ler made.
The Once-ler was determined to show his family he could amount to something. He somehow created a Thneed, a knitted garment that had so many uses I can’t list them all here, so I won’t. The Once-ler sold the Thneed instantly! To make more Thneeds, the Once-ler needed the soft tufts at the top of the Truffula Tree for more knitting, so he cut one down. This aroused the Lorax, a furry creature who “ Speaks for the Trees” and tries to protect them. What followed was a tug of war between the Lorax, who was desperate to protect the trees, and the Once-ler who only saw how much money he could make by producing Thneeds which required cutting down more trees.”
