9. They are "nature" in their own way
Edited on Sat Sep-18-10 12:10 PM by Odin2005
They provided food and shelter for countless organisms, each tree is a little ecosystem in it's own right.

The whole notion our society has that divides "nature" from "civilization" is part of the problem. We are part of nature.

We still have hundreds, if not thousands, of old American Elm trees here in Fargo, and it's always sad to see them having to cut down another tree killed by Dutch Elm Disease. Many of the older residential areas here look almost like a forest in which human civilization is interspersed, unlike the new subdivisions with have no life, no soul.
