Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
– Franklin D. Roosevelt
No-one can dispute that statement.
We are all enlightened as to the importance of trees in our world.
Every time we breath it is because of the great lungs of our Earth.
It really is a wonder why it isn’t the standard thing to do on the birth of a child… plant a tree…perhaps this should be mandatory, as a way of reminding every person on the planet about the life link between ourselves and trees.
The battle we have fought, and are still fighting, for the forests is a part of the eternal conflict between right and wrong. – John Muir
I only wish that I had more land to plant trees!
A few more acres and then some more.
I would be happy planting trees until the day I die…and then to be planted into the ground with a beautiful tree to grow from me!
So to be completely practical in the season I find myself in, I make a midwinter wish to my friends and family…a tree would make a lovely present!
A growing investment for you, me and every lovely baby born today!
If you would like me to plant a tree on your behalf, or for someone dear to you, please contact me through my Etsy Shop…
