Do they just drop seeds, or is there more too it?

Each tree is different.

Fruit trees have seeds in their fruit (WHAT A CONCEPT.) and they spread their seeds through animals consuming them, and then excreting them away from the parent tree.

Some trees just drop seeds and hope to god animals pick them up and move them.

Some have "wings" in their seeds and get blown off in the wind.

Incorrect.

What is defined as life has been debated for years, again, look up Virus and you will see that it is not as simple as you think

Nah, bro, nah.
I already knew that Virus clause because my grade 8 textbook mentioned it.
Bacteria are alive because bacteria are capable of making more bacteria.
But viruses are not alive because they need to program other cells into making more viruses for them.

"Biology" nope... It's optional in our final years... I choose Advanced Math, Physics and Chemistry instead.

Bonus buddy points if you say Physics was the phunnest.

Regardless of that, Virus are not considered "not life".
They are "in between". Literally the closest thing to "Undead" we have ever encountered.
Virus / Virion are also capable of reproducing after they've invaded a host cell.
The main difference is, bacteria -are- their own cell and capable of mitosis while a V
Even with all of this, Virus and Virion are not NOT life!

If your "grade 8"(whatever that is) textbook said that Virus were not life, it was wrong, if it said they were life, it was wrong.

Virus = Undead
IMO.
