It was Buddha who said:
"A tree is a wonderful living organism which gives
shelter, food, warmth and protection to all living things.
It even gives shade to those who wield an axe to cut it
And Joyce Kilmer immortalised the grace and beauty of
trees in poetry:
"I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree."
