Treeline - The Secret Life of Trees

"We have nothing to fear and a great deal to learn from trees, that vigorous and pacific tribe which without stint produces strengthening essences for us, soothing balms, and in whose gracious company we spend so many cool, silent, and intimate hours." - Marcel Proust

"I listened to the breeze gently slipping through the trees and caressing their lush canopies on its way to invisible places. And sitting there, I realized that both were enriched by the journey of the other. And I wondered what would happen if we were to take a lesson from the wind and the trees?" - Craig D. Lounsbrough

"Trees are very often the home of Elemental beings which you would call nature spirits, intelligences of primeval age which enjoy drifting through your world and others in a more amorphous manner. Rocks, mountains, crystals, bodies of water – these too are homes of conscious beings." - Elizabeth S. Eiler

"Who else goes to the woods to find peace only to discover themself in the process? I find forests unclutter the mind with each breath the trees afford me." - Michael Poeltl
