During its lifetime, what does a tree see? What does it experience? Does it witness a war, a new baby being brought home, a newly married couple? Did it provide shade for a tired traveler or a place to rest for someone weary? Was it the perfect place for an easter egg to be hid or an animal to make its home? How many wedding pictures has it been in; how many lives has it touched? You can tell me it’s just a tree and it needed to go, and I understand diseased trees are a safety hazard, but it’s still sad. What happens when all the trees go?
