We often forget that our trees are living, thriving life forms essential to life as we know it, as alive as much as any bird, butterfly or human for that matter.
We just need to put in a little more thought and consideration before we decide to have such a wonderful creature as a tree eliminated from our environment and ultimately the Earth.
The environmental philosopher John Muir once said, “God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools.”
Maybe not, but we can do our part to protect and preserve something as important as a tree. Wherever and whenever we can.
