The 43 Trees Project
Matthew, Among Our Best Allies
July 1987
Matthew of 43 Trees
"What an irony it is that these living beings whose shade we sit in, whose fruit we eat, whose limbs we climb, whose roots we water, to whom most of us rarely give a second thought, are so poorly understood. We need to come, as soon as possible, to a profound understanding and appreciation for trees and forests and the vital role they play, for they are among our best allies in the uncertainfuture that is unfolding."
