A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people. ”
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The best friend on earth of man is the tree. When we use the tree respectfully and economically, we have one of the greatest resources on the earth.
Frank Lloyd Wright
The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do you know that even when you look at a tree and say, “That is an oak tree” or “That is a banyan tree’, the naming of the tree, which is botanical knowledge, has so conditioned your mind that the word comes between you and actually seeing the tree? To come in contact with the tree you have to put your hand on it and the word will not help you to touch it.
Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.
The trees are born, they develop their leaves and fruits, they grow and die. I can’t ever understand why a tree is a “what” and not a “who”.
These trees are magnificent, but even more magnificent is the sublime and moving space between them, as though with their growth it too increased.
We have nothing to fear and a great deal to learn from trees, that vigorours and pacific tribe which without stint produces strengthening essences for us, soothing balms, and in whose gracious company we spend so many cool, silent, and intimate hours.
The very idea of “managing” a forest in the first place is oxymoronic, because a forest is an ecosystem that is by definition self-managing.
By respecting the trees, you prove that you are a person who deserves to be respected!
Mehmet Murat ildan
It’s when the seed grows up that it is known as a tree. Nobody calls the “seedlings” as “trees” and no seedling is ever useful because it doesn’t produce fruits! You got to grow up!
When you put a log on the fire, the light and heat you see is, in a literal sense, the decades of sunshine that tree basked in over its lifetime.
Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them.
