It’s rather funny what we do to the world. Not funny haha but funny ironic. A few weeks ago there was a terrible wind storm. As a result nearly million people were without power and thousands of amazing, old and dare I say wise trees fell to their untimely deaths.
All we could was say, “It’s such a shame so many dead trees.”
(Griffith Park 12/11)
Now a few weeks later in places like NYC, Washington DC and my home of LA we kill trees on purpose. We kill the same amazing, old and dare I say wise, defenseless trees all in the name of holiday decorating? Pine trees taller than 75 feet and nearly 100 years old, killed just because.
In this case we are the real shame; this species we call human beings. I may sound harsh but killing so many trees when one doesn’t have to out of need or necessity is harsh and it is cruel.
Consider an alternative to killing a tree. Consider something new, something alive that can be replanted or consider dedicating a tree with these guys instead:
