Spirituality of Trees

"Trees seem to do their feats so effortlessly.

Every year a given tree creates absolutely from scratch ninety-nine percent of its living parts.

Water lifting up tree trunks can climb one hundred and fifty feet an hour; in full summer a tree can, and does, heave a ton of water every day.

A big elm in a single season might make as many as six million leaves, wholly intricate, without budging an inch; I couldn’t make one."

From its beginning the earth is a spiritual as well as a physical reality.
