Okay. I admit it. I am a tree lover. Everywhere I go, I notice the trees or lack of trees.
But I am sure you notice them, too. Even if you don't consciously think about it, when you scan you're environment, you are feeling the effects of the trees around you. How they filter the light, their cooling effects, sounds, the wildlife that live among their branches..Trees are fully alive and engaged in our natural spaces.
The first home we purchased was on 1/4 acre. It had one large oak tree. It felt bleak and lacked abundance. We now live on roughly 1/3 acre and there are over 30 resident oak, maple, and a few dogwood trees! Coming from a fairly barren environment, I fell in love with our property at first sight.
I wanted to share this wonderful article on 16 of the most magnificent trees with you. I am sure you will love it, too!
And, if you're a tree lover like me, you might be interested in attending a workshop being held this September 20th, 2014 "The Experiential Art of Healing Trees & EcoSystems."
