Can we use pronoun "he" for a tree? I know tree is a neutral noun it will carry "it" I just want to conform.

I have never heard unthankful used either, which is why I flagged it initially, but it's a normal construction, just like ungrateful, which is commonly used, so I wouldn't say it's wrong.

To me, what's important is that its meaning is clear, and it seems to be the meaning you want. Thankless normally means something different; when I realised this, I posted my correction.

Perhaps the obvious answer would be to use ungrateful here. It doesn't exactly mean "failing to express thanks" but it's close, and it's a very standard word.

Use 'it'.

In fantasy writing, if the tree is being endowed with human characteristics, it could be considered male or female.
In literal writing, a tree is always an it.

"When it lost all his leaves he realized his fault mistake: that it was his foolishness foolish to became be unthankful thankless and selfish"

That sentence starts by calling the tree an it, then calls it a him. You can't mix and match like that.
The other corrections are just suggestions. The sentence is unacceptable in its original form, but there may be more appropriate ways to fix it.

Ok thanks.
But I feel it would be better if I share the text with you. The text is taken for an animated story.
"When it lost all his (the tree) leaves he (the tree) realized his fault that it was his foolishness to became unthankful and selfish" I thank the use of he and his is incorrect here it must be "it" and "its"

Thank you so much sir.
So it was right to share the original text.
Yes. If in doubt, include the context. Knowing the context can be a big help in understanding the exact question being asked, and providing a relevant and correct answer.

It's tempting to omit the context because you want to make your question brief, but in many cases, that can cause confusion and can make the thread much longer than it needed to be.

If you had included more context, for example a few preceding sentences, I might have been able to suggest better corrections for that sentence.

I think one of my corrections to your sentence (in an earlier post) was wrong.

I corrected unthankful to thankless. Actually, unthankful is a better word. Thankless can also mean unthankful, but its main meaning relates to doing something that you will not be appreciated or thanked for. For example, "raising children is a thankless task".

You could use ungrateful, which is a more common word, but if you mean unthankful, that is the best word to use.
R/sir you know better than I do. But the problem is I couldn't find the word unthankful in online OALD (not even in wordhippo.com). I checked it there even before posting the question. Is unthankful is a word used in English language other than Britten English?

I, a speaker of British English would never use the word 'unthankful'. It does appear in some dictionaries , but not many.
