Today I must tell you what a blessing I consider TREES to be. I love trees - in all their glory, shape, color and function.
Just think about all the wonderful things we have in our lives because of trees: Furniture, Lumber, Firewood, Syrup, Paper, Boxes. Think about the shade that trees provide. The homes provided for creatures like birds and squirrels. What about the Koala bears and the monkeys - where would they be without trees? What would Christmas be without a Christmas Tree ~ not only to showcase our ornaments, but the smell is wonderful? Think about the beauty that trees provide. The great pleasure of seeing all the gorgeous colors in the Fall is enough to realize what a blessing trees are. I'm certain there are many more functions and joys provided by trees that I've not mentioned here. Think about those. We should take care of our trees - a blessing for sure!

Audrey-I agree. I live in an area where trees are slaughtered wholesale for pallets. I often think of the eco systems living within these felled trees and it makes me very sad.
