Great Larry,
Here mine

Congaree old and wide
Tall and treasured wet wonder
Preserve for to see

Who speaks for the Trees? WE ALL DO!

I think these Haikus by you guys are great. You know the trees so well that nobody else could write with such knowledge and thoughtfulness. Here's one. I don't even know if it makes sense, but I do like trying.

Empire State Building-
the honey locust peers up.
Doubtful succession.
Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them. ~Bill Vaughn

The ash tree survives;
Yggdrasil expands her world
The squirrel rejoices

Geru-hausu
every plant is native somewhere

If I can stand still,
but know how to eat the sun,
will I too be tree?"

Persimmon gives fruit
Pucker, frost, freeze, then so sweet
Who knows to taste it?

This London Plane Tree,
Smooth, wood, spine against my back.
Hold me up always?

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky

my litery skills are similar to my drawing skills- at the first grade level- though I have contemplated writing some rap tunes on the forestry world....

hmmm..... how about some rap tunes about big tree measuring? I'd love to video tape Bob Leverett rapping about his latest laser tools
