    I'm not sure if anyone here at least

    My name means town of the ash tree,

    so I have always felt at ease around nature. I love the depths of the forest. The sound of rain falling from leaf to leaf, tree limb to tree limb. I love how every tree tells a story. A story of survival, strength, and grandeur.

    I tend to feel so lonely in crowds.

    Once I'm in a forest, I feel warmth and love. I feel like I'm surrounded by my bestest friends. There is a deep sense of serenity that I feel when I'm around trees. Happiness.

    Trees

    I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the earth's sweet flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in summer wear A nest of robins in her...

    One of the best days I've ever had was with my

    father walking in the Foret de Fontainebleau when I was ten. He was explaining hand history of the forest, and talking about the trees, which genus each was. It was so vivid, so interesting. And it was time spent with my father.

    The Woodland Wench

    Embracing the beauty of the bark, She lays on a bed of fallen leaves, Embarking on her journey of her love of the trees, Basking under its shade and protection, She rests with comfort and peace, And is in awe of the provisions of nature.

    Highest Hill In The Range

    I grew up in a village that was the highest in the range. The village was surrounded by Beech woods that were beautiful. The sentinel trees canopied the ground but the stately trunks were as columns in a temple to nature. I miss my life under the trees but I am a frequent...

    Last year I was really depressed. I had decided that I didn't want to live anymore and I was going to commit suicide. I went through a lot of mental, emotional, and physical pain in 2007 and didn't want to deal with it anymore. What made me realize that killing myself wouldn't...

    Its Gothic!

    Trees are nature's cathedral and I like to worship at the source. Being in tune with nature while living in the confusion of urban life is essential. Making sense of the world of work and greed while you are with the trees is a security for me.

    We need them to live; a world of bare soil

    and concrete flooded by rain that has nowhere to go to is a pared down monstrosity. We build such ugliness, when our examples are so beautiful. A tree is creation, evolving; a building is chaos, an eyesore, it can only decay. Trees give us air, buildings give us claustrophobia...

    Land Without Trees

    In 1903 Ireland had just 1.5% forest cover today it is about 10%. Much of this forest is plantations of conifers from the North West of America. About 1% of this cover is native wild wood, this is the stuff that nature intended to grow on that piece of land. The natural plant...

    Forest Walk

    At the beginning of every walk through the forest I love I have to decide whether to walk past the reflection pond. Sometimes I want to walk on the path that avoids it. I wonder if that is because I am in no mood to reflect? It is a beautiful pond though so I decided to walk...

    So beautiful and mysterious I truly feel at

    home in the forest. All the green is just so perfect. It's been ages since I've seen one since I moved to Cali :( not many trees here. I just don't feel the same about beaches at all. Ah I'd love to b back where I used to live for a week or two, such gorgeous forests

    Especially In Autumn..

    Forests Are Wonderful

    Forests and trees are so important to the planet and to our collective spiritual psyche. It pains me when I see them being cut down and destroyed. I grew up in a forest. We moved away when I was ten years old and I missed it so much. Yet even to this day, when I close my eyes and...
