Save The Trees, Please

Updated on October 19, 2014

Please More Trees!

Plant A Tree Or Two

The first rule of nature should be save the trees. They are an important part of the circle of life. Trees, nature's condos for the little guys, are bursting with life.

Squirrels, birds, and bugs count on them for a place to live. Get to know a tree today!

All is in the beholder's eyes.

Ok then.

Redwoods Are Fantastic!

There is nothing quite like looking up, up, and up into a redwood. When my friend, Flat Stanley, was visiting me from Ohio, he was amazed by these giant trees.

Here Flat Stanley is posing with a baby redwood tree; it's approximately 150 feet high. Flat Stan is about 7 inches high and 3 inches wide.

Flat Stanley is a paper boy. He was squished by a bookcase maybe, so his parents mail him hither and yon to study geography. He was part of a project for my niece, Emily.

Redwood trees grow along the California coast.

Save The Trees

1. Cut back on your paper usage - go electronic.

2. Plant trees.

3. Cut your energy footprint down, even just a little bit.

Trees are part of the circle of life. They are a very important part of our world. The circle cannot continue when pieces are missing from it. Then what happens when the trees are all gone and exist no more? Where do we go from there?

What happens when they're all gone? I believe it would have a profoundly negative effect on all life forms, including humans. It would be the beginning of the end.

I love trees and hate to see their destruction. Say it loud, say it proud!

      So glad you mentioned Muir Woods. I lived in Northern California for two years as a kid and I've been back several times since. The coastal redwood forests are my favorite place on Earth.

      Growing up in the country, I had as special feel for trees and the sense being surrounded by them with their sounds and scents defining a forest.

      I always explained the importance of trees to people in an allegoric way. I tell them the story of a man marooned on a planet with very little oxygen which is made by the only three on the planet. The tree had thorns and every day the man had to pass by the tree which was rather long as it spreads over a wide area. He has to make the trip to its roots to get his sustenance. One hot day, he got a lot of cuts from the thorns and out of hanger hacked the tree to death.

      Usually at this point most people will say what a fool! and I will say "Well, that is you".

      I am also a tree lover. I have them around my garden, I love to walk in woods, I photograph them and paint them (on paper...) long may they reign. Not only are they useful and necessary for the environment but make the worl a better place, for me anyway.

      Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,

      We fell them down and turn them into paper,

      That we may record our emptiness.
