Look Up!!

The best friend of earth of man is the tree. When we use the tree respectfully
and economically, we have one of the greatest resources on the earth.

- Frank Lloyd Wright
God is the experience of looking at a tree and saying, "Ah!"- Joseph Campbell
Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come.- Chinese proverb

... every tree near our house had a name of its own and a special identity.
This was the beginning of my love for natural things, for earth and sky,
for roads and fields and woods, for trees and grass and flowers; a love
which has been second only to my sense of enduring kinship with birds
and animals, and all inarticulate creatures.
- Ellen Glasgow (1874-1945)


Trees have from time immemorial been closely associated with magic.
These stout members of the vegetable kingdom may stand for as long
as a thousand years, and tower far above our mortal heads. As such
they are symbols and keepers of unlimited power, longevity, and
timelessness. An untouched forest, studded with trees of all ages,
sizes and types, is more than a mysterious, magical place - it is one
of the energy reservoirs of nature. Within its boundaries stand
ancient and new sentinels, guardians of the universal force
which has manifested on the the Earth ...

- Scott Cunningham, Earth Power: Techniques of Natural Magick
