Root Connections

'I saw two old beeches standing next to each other. Each one was growing its branches turned away from the other rather than toward each other, as is more usually the case. In this way and others, tree friends take care of each other. This kind of partnership is well known to foresters.

They know that if you see such a couple, they are really like a human couple; you have to chop down both if you chop one down, because the other will die anyway'
