There are some 'funny' ways people use these words in daily life - they can mean different things. For examples:

I don't have any money = I have 'no' money.

I have little money = I am poor (I have almost nothing).

I have a little money = I have ‘enough’ money to live on.

I have some money = I am (reasonably) rich or wealthy = I have a few dallars.

I have money = I have more than enough money (to live on) = I am OK money-wise.

I have few trees = I have 2 or 3 trees.

I have a few trees = I have many more (than 2 or 3) trees.
