The Tree Story

Trees experience time so differently from us that they sometimes seem to us like otherwordly, incomprehensible beings. Our lives are so busy and changing, while trees appear so calm that they seem to be unchanging features of the landscape. To understand trees properly we have to forget our usual references.
