People who will not sustain trees will soon live in a world which cannot sustain people.
-- Bryce Nelson
Give me a land of boughs in leaf, a land of trees that stand; where trees are fallen there is grief; I love no leafless land.
-- A.E. Housman
Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them.
-- Bill Vaughan
By means of trees, wildlife could be conserved, pollution decreased and the beauty of our landscapes enhanced. This is the way, or at least one of the ways, to spiritual, moral, and cultural regeneration.
-- E.F. Schumacher
The forests are the flags of nature. They appeal to all and awaken inspiring universal feeling. Enter the forest and the boundaries of nations are forgotten. It may be that some time an immortal pine will be the flag of a united and peaceful world.
-- Enos A. Mills
A tree overshadowed by other trees
is starved of light and loses its fruit and leaves.
It dries and slowly dies
and becomes a tree despised.
The tree that stands alone,
birds soon make it home,
never stunted it continues to grow,
the sun and rain it intimately knows.
The same is true for you,
don’t allow yourself beneath another’s shoe.
Be a leader, a follower never be,
and grow like strongest and tallest of trees.
༺♥༻ “Any fool can destroy trees.
They cannot defend
themselves or run away. And
few destroyers of trees ever
plant any; nor can planting
avail much toward
restoring our grand aboriginal
giants. It took more than
years to make some of the
oldest of the Sequoias, trees
that are still
standing in perfect strength
and beauty, waving and
singing in the mighty
forests of the Sierra.”
