Trees In Nature’s Economy

“By virtue of cooling the air and spraying the sky and multiplying the clouds trees exert considerable influence upon the fall and distribution of rain; by virtue of sponging the earth around their feet they enormously influence the behaviour of floods, the discipline of rivers, the supply of springs, the health of fish… Forests are so much more than meets the eye. They are fountains. They are oceans. They are pipes. They are dams. Their work ramifies through the whole economy of nature.”
From The Triumph of the Tree by John Stewart Collis

Trees Love Care
