So big so small,
So old, so new
So short, so tall.
Dry, or covered in dew.

Used everywhere,
Destroyed but saved.
Happiness or despair,
When I am razed.

Trust me, I know
Really, I'm near.
Every arrow and bow
Earned its shape, dear.

It could be

a tree or a forest of trees

I would add explanations, but it's all self-explanatory.

also, the first letters of the last stanza spell TREE

I think it's a

Tree

So big so small, So old, so new So short, so tall. Dry, or covered in dew.

Those adjectives perfectly fit for a tree.

Used everywhere, Destroyed but saved. Happiness or despair, When I am razed.

Wood has many applications. Forests are destroyed by many, protected by others. Cutting a tree is bad for the planet, but good for paper industry.

Trust me, I know Really, I'm near. Every arrow and bow Earned its shape, dear.

Arrows and bows are made of wood.

Easter Egg:

In the last stanza, the initials of each line form the word "Tree".
