The Trees that Bind Us

Trees are the common denominator binding the world’s cultural and religious traditions, dating back to ancient times. Throughout history, the meaning and symbolism have evolved, along with the significance. They are the singular plant that links our past, present and future.

The tree is forever synonymous with many attributes, including life, growth, spirituality, development, transformation, wisdom, generosity and rebirth. At the same time, they provide us with protection, shelter, food and breathable air.

Next time you walk by a tree, thank it for taking such great care of you! Better yet, give it a hug.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
