Deuteronomy 20:19

When thou layest siege unto a city many days, to fight against it, to capture it, thou dost not destroy its trees to force an axe against them, for of them thou dost eat, and them thou dost not cut down — for man's is the tree of the field — to go in at thy presence in the siege.
Deuteronomy 20:19 from Young's Literal Translation.
