In honor of National Arbor Day - some special quotes about trees


"Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life." Hermann Hesse, Bäume. Betrachtungen und Gedichte
"The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness."  John Muir
"A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people. "
Franklin D. Roosevelt
