“What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
"The poor ignorant savage even apologized to a tree for having to cut it down and had sacred groves and woods he left standing— homes of the gods or of his fellow creatures—whereas his successor, who ungodded nature, ravages the heights and brings floods, dustbowls and salt pans into the once fertile lowlands. Or worse, defoliates to facilitate hunting down his brother man."
- Jacob Trapp, The Light of a Thousand Suns, 1973
“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”
― John Muir
Each generation takes the earth as trustees. We ought to bequeath to posterity as many forests and orchards as we have exhausted and consumed."
- J. Sterling Morton
