Can Matter Be Destroyed?

Answer

Matter can't be destroyed completely. It changes form, for instance a tree can catch on fire but the tree doesn't disappear even though what we think of as a tree is no longer there. The trees matter has been broken down into it's initial elements, carbon, ash, oxygen, all of these and many more still exist in the same amount as they had before.
