Trees – Matter

I read about the shortlist for this year’s ‘Tree of the Year’ https://theorkneynews.scot/2021/12/09/voting-opens-for-tree-of-the-year-2021/, and remembered a poem written by friend Wendy who is very much a friend of trees. 

The world needs more of them – individuals and organizations who don’t take part in the current mania for cutting down trees or covering them in nets to stop birds nesting.

The world is losing its way. Thank goodness for clear-seeing-strong-feeling folk like Wendy.
