Vivek
In several sections, both natural in the banks of the Mississippi and its numerous arms, and where artificial canals had been cut, I observed erect stumps of trees, with their roots attached, buried in strata at different heights, one over the other.
Charles Lyell
As I get older, I have a very strong urge to know about stuff. I want to learn the names of trees and birds; that’s the sort of knowledge I want to pass on to my son.

Richard Le Gallienne
My grandfather taught me trees and the Latin names of trees when I was five or six. His father was a forester, so he knew them all.

Liam Gallagher
Nature is my church. The wind in the trees and the bugs and the frogs. All those things are comfort to me.
Sissy Spacek

Not just human existence, but the existence of life and how this breathtakingly powerful process, which is natural selection, has managed to take the very simple facts of physics and chemistry and build them up to redwood trees and humans.
Richard Dawkins
I prefer cynical people. Nice guys grow on trees.
J Mascis
At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. At the Winter Solstice, the wind is cold, trees are bare and all lies in stillness beneath blankets of snow.
Gary Zukav
These trees and these old people have one thing in common, they’re both going in the ground soon!
Bam Margera
I have fruit trees. Cows for fresh milk, yoghurt. My own wheat. I’m basically self-sufficient.
Imran Khan
Ted Geisel was trying to make a statement about awareness and personal responsibility. He was very clear about that. But the ideas and themes in ‘The Lorax’ go beyond a love of trees. It’s also a story about the dangers of greed and the power of redemption. That’s what makes it a timeless tale.
Chris Meledandri
Us sing and dance, make faces and give flower bouquets, trying to be loved. You ever notice that trees do everything to git attention we do, except walk?
Alice Walker
I think that a lot of people will agree that Donegal is the countryside, it’s trees and fields, but especially when you’re a kid you can make so much out of that.
Amybeth McNulty

Adam Riess
Your soul is a dark forest. But the trees are of a particular species, they are genealogical trees.
Marcel Proust
Until half a century ago, the Maures slopes had been silvery with olive trees, but in 1956 disaster struck. February frosts dropped beneath minus seven and the trees were blighted.
Carol Drinkwater
A shan-shui city is a modern city, a high-density urban situation, but we pay more attention to the environment. We bring waterfalls; we bring in a lot of trees and gardens. We treat architecture as a landscape.
Ma Yansong
Sometimes, as is the case of peach and plum trees, which are often dwarfed, the plants are thrown into a flowering states, and then, as they flower freely year after year, they have little inclination to make vigorous growth.
Robert Fortune
I run three to four times a week. I go down to Orange County in California and I run all the time… all the time. You see the oceans, the trees. I like running in hot weather. I like to sweat and get all those toxins out of my system. I thoroughly enjoy it.
Sugar Ray Leonard
The ideal job letter starts with a brilliant light. Then we realize that this brilliant light is actually sunlight, shafts of it, pouring through trees onto a thick bed of pine needles. Soft dusty resin floats in the sun shafts, invitingly. The smell of pine and sap rises from the forest floor. A twig snaps underfoot.
Timothy Morton
Since childhood she had walked the Devon rivers with her father looking for flowers and the nests of birds, passing some rocks and trees as old friends, seeing a Spirit everywhere, gentle in thought to all her eyes beheld.
Henry Williamson
I’ve always been more interested in organisms that can move on their own than in stationary plants. But when I canoe or hike along the edge of lakes or oceans and see trees that seem to be growing out of rock faces, I am blown away. How do they do it?
David Suzuki
The Internet is part of this ongoing, species-long project we’ve been working on since we climbed down out of the trees in the savanna. We’ve been working on it without really knowing it.
William Gibson
I am 100-films old. In my heyday, I have done a lot of

I am 100-films old. In my heyday, I have done a lot of commercial films, including dancing around the trees with the heroine. But after working with Rituparno Ghosh, my understanding of cinema changed. Whatever good I am doing, it is because of him. If I am being called a good actor, it is only because of him.
Jisshu Sengupta
Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong.
Winston Churchill

Naomi Watts
I grew up wearing trousers and climbing trees.
Vicky Krieps
Being a woman has only bothered me in climbing trees.
Frances Perkins
Relatively mild gusts of wind blow some trees down. Graceful palm trees, for example, are lovely to look at but will not stand up in a heavy wind because they are not well anchored.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
The coniferous forests of the Yosemite Park, and of the Sierra in general, surpass all others of their kind in America, or indeed the world, not only in the size and beauty of the trees, but in the number of species assembled together, and the grandeur of the mountains they are growing on.
John Muir
Trees are the earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
Rabindranath Tagore
As Dutch elm disease spread across Britain in the 1970s, the country fell into mourning. When the sentinel trees that framed our horizons were felled, their loss was a constant topic of sad and angry conversation.

No one can reap the fruit before planting the trees.
Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva
Parents are often so busy with the physical rearing of children that they miss the glory of parenthood, just as the grandeur of the trees is lost when raking leaves.

Michael Specter
The garden is my second profession. It’s 22 hectares, which is a big garden. I really need it, going from the flower garden, the shrubs and the trees, the vegetable garden, all these things.
Dries van Noten
I collect old rusty hand tools and sharpen and polish them, then use them to build things out of walnut and cherry that I harvest from fallen trees in the woods.
John Grogan
That’s the great thing about New Year’s, you get to be a year older. For me, that wasn’t such a joke, because my birthday was always around this time. When I was a kid, my father used to tell me that everybody was celebrating my birthday. That’s what the trees are all about.
Alan King
I was always really into the facts and figures and the statistics about nature and I always loved learning about it and having a new fact on hand. For me it was non-stop dirt, climbing trees and catching lizards and beetles. That was my thing as soon as I could crawl.
Steve Backshall
The dwarfed trees of the Chinese and Japanese have been noticed by every author who has written upon these countries, and all have attempted to give some description of the method by which the effect is produced.
Robert Fortune
One of the shocking things when I go back to Canada is they cut off the tall trees – it’s sort of like everyone’s the same. Everyone’s going to be the same, we’re all okay. Just the, sort of, cultural, ‘We’re all okay.’
Shane Smith
I don’t care what town you’re born in, what city, what country. If you’re a child, you are curious about your environment. You’re overturning rocks. You’re plucking leaves off of trees and petals off of flowers, looking inside, and you’re doing things that create disorder in the lives of the adults around you.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Some people like to paint trees. I like to paint love. I find it more meaningful than painting trees.
Robert Indiana
Budapest was very beautiful and spending the day under a canopy of Hungarian trees, on horseback, was fantastic.
Mathew Horne
Heaven and God are not high above us, far away; they are deep within us. Heaven is not a distant country where there are trees and houses and other objects; it is a plane of consciousness within us. Seekers of the eternal Truth will realise their eternal Heaven within their aspiring hearts.
Sri Chinmoy
I love fruit. One of my earliest memories is climbing trees for figs, and I once got stuck in one when I was six. I could see the biggest, juiciest fig and I climbed up and got it and ate it right there, sitting on a branch. Then I realised I couldn’t get down.
Katie Melua
I don’t like to see Christmas trees torn down.
John Prine

Laurie Graham
Venice Beach is incredibly quiet at night: no streetlights, no traffic, hummingbirds in the garden, palm trees everywhere.
KT Tunstall
It was like my part-time job as a kid to be an adventurer… in my head. I used to sword-fight in the garden and in the park – with my Nan, of all people, with my Nan who can barely walk! I used to make her run around, and I’d go around destroying these trees and cones and stuff.
Elliot Knight
Some days, I would find what seemed like entire family trees, torn from once-treasured albums and dumped in disorganized bins, selling 10 for a dollar. I wondered how people could give up pictures of their great-grandparents for complete strangers to paw through – or why complete strangers would want them.
Ransom Riggs
I talk to trees and animals. We have interesting conversations about food, weather, and love. They sometimes can predict the future.
Shan Sa
Legislatures represent people, not acres or trees.

Legislatures represent people, not acres or trees.
Earl Warren
Too many trees are killed to print the words of people who may not have all that much to say, and authors and journalists are equally culpable in this regard.
Vikram Seth
I have had the most wonderful childhood, and I was raised in a very loving family. And it was nothing short of an amazing privilege because I was incredibly lucky to be able to play up in trees and make it like silly dens in a bush and stuff like that.
Rose Leslie
I was surfing the Internet, and I came across a school in Atlanta where you could learn how to climb trees with ropes the way the pros do. It sounded terrific, and so I went down there, and I began to learn these kind of rarified techniques for how you get up and down trees while using special ropes and gear.
Richard Preston
We all think Al Gore invented email so we could save time and save paper, to save trees. And that includes phone trees.
Faith Salie
Based on German prototypes, green walls and roofs are a natural idea in Singapore’s tropical environment, where mosses, ferns, philodendrons, orchids and other epiphytes literally grow on trees.
Alan Huffman
I planted trees but the idea that you can offset carbon is nonsense – planting trees is more a way of acknowledging harm and apologising.
Gail Bradbrook
I grew up in Mobile, Alabama – somebody’s got to be from Mobile, right? – and Mobile sits at the confluence of five rivers, forming this beautiful delta. And the delta has alligators crawling in and out of rivers filled with fish and cypress trees dripping with snakes, birds of every flavor.
Mike deGruy
In about 1975-76, I lived with a woman in a little hut with some fruit trees, and I had some of the most extraordinary, happy times of my life. Apart from the horrendous Queensland police, who were corrupt and venal, it really was like living in paradise.
Peter Carey
The benefits of organic coffee are significant, as chemical-free soil is good soil. This extends to healthy trees which result in good beans with greater antioxidants and less chemical residues.
Rohan Marley
Think of a forest, then imagine taking 10,000 trees and squeezing them together until there is essentially no space between them. That’s what the neocortical column looks like.
Henry Markram
Although I’m a city boy, I am a rural person at heart – and that comes from school. I’d lived near Marble Arch in London and it was fantastic to be surrounded by fields and trees.
Ben Fogle
Elves are like trees, grounded and focused from the trunk down but graceful and agile on top.
Orlando Bloom
Trees are complicated, fascinating things, usually older and more beautiful than any of us.
Monty Don
I love the outdoors and looking at snakes, squirrels, bugs – just going through the woods and being part of it. You can smell the different trees. And I listen. There’s so much you can learn by listening, by sitting and watching things happen.
Boo Weekley
Nature is my springboard. From her I get my initial impetus. I have tried to relate the visible drama of mountains, trees, and bleached fields with the fantasy of wind blowing and changing colors and forms.
Milton Avery
Ever since I’ve been a kid, I’ve always been about running around, climbing trees, exploring.
Noah Centineo
Only by planting trees, we will be able to overcome global warming.
Vivek
It was only after a while, after photographing mines and clear-cutting of forests in Maine, that I realized I was looking at the components of photography itself. Photography uses paper made from trees, water, metals, and chemistry. In a way, I was looking at all these things that feed into photography.
David Maisel
We did not see ourselves as remaking cinema at the time, at least not in my view. Myself and the other actors were not part of the industry; we weren’t inside the star system. We were running around, shooting in the streets, hiding behind trees to do our makeup. It was a very simple way of working.
Anna Karina
Hanging out with the Trees is like hanging out with your family, and I hardly ever see my family.
Mark Lanegan
I love driving around Hancock Park. I think it was designed in the 1920s, and it still has that feel. The streetlamps and trees that line the streets are all the same. It’s beautiful and peaceful, and it’s right in the middle of L.A.
Kendrick Sampson
Being half Jewish, we grew up with Christmas trees but had Jewish ornaments.
Gina Rodriguez
My wife, Daniela, and I live in an old house from 1810 with three fireplaces at the end of a dead-end dirt road on Cape Cod, so I turn the trees into firewood for us and a friend of mine sells the rest.
Sebastian Junger
I look at trees, hunt mushrooms, and watch animals. Fishing is what gets me out into the woods so I can notice these things.
John D. Voelker
Obviously, movies, you’re often on location, out in the rain or the sun, in a real place where the trees and the cars are real. But when you’re on stage, as an actor you’re imagining the environment that you’re in.
Peter Jackson
The Druids held the trees as very sacred.
Enya
By reading Huckleberry Finn I felt I was able to justify my act of going into the mountain forest at night and sleeping among the trees with a sense of security which I could never find indoors.
Kenzaburo Oe
The No. 1 cause of forest fires is trees.
Pat Paulsen
God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees.

On the screen I saw tanks rolling through dusty streets, and fallen buildings, and forests of unfamiliar trees into which East Pakistani refugees had fled, seeking safety over the Indian border.
Jhumpa Lahiri
How did it happen that their lips came together? How do

How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.
Victor Hugo
Known colloquially as ‘winter,’ ‘golden needle,’ and ‘velvet foot’ mushrooms, enoki mushrooms grow across much of the world, inhabiting dead conifer trees and stumps, and generally appearing throughout the late fall and winter months.
Paul Stamets
My grandfather gave me my first guitar, an old acoustic with palm trees and dancing girls painted on it.
Dan Fogelberg
I will not accept a role just because a big hero stars in it. I am not here to merely dance, run around trees, and be a glam doll.
Nithya Menen
Modern man has a very abstract idea of what a wood is. I guess that if you stopped anyone on the street and asked them what a wood actually was, they would see it as a place where big trees grow.
Monty Don
It is easier to feel than to realize, or in any way explain, Yosemite grandeur. The magnitudes of the rocks and trees and streams are so delicately harmonized, they are mostly hidden.
John Muir
I’m not meant to run around trees. I can’t throw my arms in the air and sing, I find that boring and irritating. Sweet romcoms are not my cup of tea. The film has to be a little twisted and quirky.
Emraan Hashmi
A world without a proper day of rest is like a landscape without hedgerows, trees, or landmarks: a howling, featureless wilderness in which we incessantly seek pleasure because we cannot find happiness.
Peter Hitchens
I’m not just interested in fascinating faces or trees. I want to bore in deeper.
Jamie Wyeth
I’m very close in age to my older brother, and we had a field at the end of the road where we could run around, climb trees, play football.
James Bay
Sometimes I wonder: What are the children thinking? And sometimes I wonder why the hell I’m not buying a tree like the other neighbors. After all, there is no mention in Christianity of Christmas trees, and even if there were – is there any good reason why I shouldn’t be buying some red stockings?
Sayed Kashua
We’re dabbling in eugenics all the time, breeding ideal crops to replace less aesthetic or nutritious or hardy varieties; leveling forests to graze cattle or erect shopping malls and condos; planting groves of a few familiar trees that homeowners and industries prefer.
Diane Ackerman
Each solstice is a domain of experience unto itself. At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. At the Winter Solstice, the wind is cold, trees are bare and all lies in stillness beneath blankets of snow.
Gary Zukav
St. Petersburg is a wonderful city. You have wonderful parks, birds singing in the trees, manatees in the water, pelicans. So it’s like this little paradise on Earth.
Bjarke Ingels
It was really difficult to sing; nobody showed me how to do it. I remember early Screaming Trees shows in the ’80s when I’d walk away with a pounding headache from trying to sing way out of my range.
Mark Lanegan
I always think of the Pacific Northwest as giant trees and rain and clouds and dampness, like the Native American art from that area. That all says Pacific Northwest to me. Salmon. It really only exists on the Western side of the Cascades.
Kyle MacLachlan
When I write stories I am like someone who is in her own country, walking along streets that she has known since she was a child, between walls and trees that are hers.
Natalia Ginzburg
And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
William Shakespeare
I tell you what, if you live in Spokane, I hope you wake up every day and you’re thankful for the weather, for the trees, for the colors, for the greenery, for cars that stop when you’re running and you go to cross the road and they stop. I love it.
Anne McClain
It’s just as easy to buy a $12,000 watch in East Hampton as it is to pick up a carton of milk, and new homeowners are so impatient that they landscape their front lawns with ‘mature gardens’ of full-grown trees.
Steven Gaines
You either keep the forest standing, which takes jobs away from indigenous people who need to feed themselves, or you cut down the trees, which affects the climate. In the long term, you have to protect the forest.
Johan Eliasch
What the eyes perceive in herbs or stones or trees is not yet a remedy; the eyes see only the dross.
Paracelsus
People don’t remember each tree in a park but all of us benefit from the trees. And in a way, artists are like trees in a park.
Yoko Ono
Jerusalem sits on a hill surrounded by valleys. It is a dry, craggy region but ideal for olive trees, which require minimal irrigation.
Carol Drinkwater
I really liked Yale, although it was extremely intimidating. When I visited the campus, I was hiding behind trees, I felt so unworthy.
Claire Danes
Street and park trees provide tremendous benefits to cities.
Gavin Newsom
There’s a catharsis in cutting down trees. But there’s absolutely none of that in picking cotton. It’s maddening! It’s fiddly, and it pricks your fingers, and it’s something that’s a very hard skill if you have no alacrity for it.
Chiwetel Ejiofor
I found out that there was this project called the ‘Great Green Wall’ where they wanted to plant trees across the Sahara desert, and the idea was born that I wanted to create a support structure for that initiative.
Magnus Larsson
The script was always the most important thing to me and I loved the script. For one thing, I’ve always admired trees. I just worship them. Think what trees have witnessed, what history, such as living through the Civil War, yet they still survive.
Kim Novak
The richness and generosity of the human spirit I discovered in those journeys, meeting with olive farmers and people caught up in war was very humbling for me. Also, finding trees that were six or seven thousand years old made me realise what a tiny pea I am in the world.
Carol Drinkwater
My mother was born in June and later, feeling a vacancy, chose her birth month for her middle name. Marry to marry, had kids because that’s what was done. Liked crossword puzzles, liked lilac trees, liked baking in the sun, and liked Bing Crosby.
Judith Viorst
The reader feels as if he is in Chongjin, where starvin

The reader feels as if he is in Chongjin, where starving people ate the bark off trees; or atop Mount Taesong with the elite of Pyongyang, whose existence is a mix of sadism and whimsy; or with the masses who are bombarded day and night with the propaganda of North Korea’s alternate reality.
Adam Johnson
I grew up barefoot, dirty, climbing trees. It made me appreciate things more.
Elle King
For centuries, building materials were free. You want to build a house, you cut down some trees. But we haven’t been thinking about the cost to the planet.
Dan Phillips
Having trees and a track to run on have become more important to me than living near cool restaurants.
Lauren Graham
There are so many opportunities to see the sun go down in the evening and the sun come up in the morning. The colors change on the trees, on the snow. I’m surrounded by people who are friendly and helpful.
Burt Shavitz
I want those young whipper-snappers to know that in days past we actually used to kill trees and make those things called books.
Eric Jerome Dickey
To such an extent does nature delight and abound in variety that among her trees there is not one plant to be found which is exactly like another; and not only among the plants, but among the boughs, the leaves and the fruits, you will not find one which is exactly similar to another.
Leonardo da Vinci
I put quite a few trees in last autumn. A lot of silver birch and a couple of native trees – just generally doing gardening, putting plants in and hedges in. It takes quite a lot of time and I love it.
Sean Bean
The Barks of Trees are best gathered in the Spring, if it be of great Trees, as Oaks or the like, because then they come easiest off, and so you may dry them if you please, but indeed your best way is to gather all Barks only for present use.
Nicholas Culpeper
If you cut down a forest, it doesn’t matter how many sawmills you have if there are no more trees.
Susan George
I feel spirituality is not just restricted to God. There are ample manifestations of God on earth as well – in our parents and in the nature – trees, mountains and rivers.
Alok Nath
The colour of a British wood in autumn is predominantly yellow. There are relatively few European trees which have red leaves in the autumn. But there are splashes of crimson or rust-red colours from a few indigenous trees, like the rowan, as well as from introduced species, like the North American red oak.
Alice Roberts
Poisonous frogs feast on insects that don’t even have names. Tropical lizards disappear into the cracks of trees whose branches spread out as wide as their trunks climb high. This is the real Florida, as it was before people, and probably will be after us, too.
Nancy Pickard
Vision connects you. But it also separates you. In my work, and my life, I feel a desire to merge. Not in terms of losing my own identity… but there’s a feeling that life is interconnected, that there’s life in stones and rocks and trees and dirt, like there is in us.
Bill Viola
We have lots of fruit trees and vegetables – we live endlessly on courgettes. I certainly wouldn’t approve of a diet of McDonald’s for my children.
Jade Jagger
If I had my own Neverland it would probably be the coolest place in the world. You could do anything you want there. There would be trees everywhere.
Jeremy Sumpter
It’s wrong to make a living off the theater. Theater should be supported, like redwood trees. You should make your living – whether you’re a writer or an actor or a director – in movies or commercials. But you do theater out of love.
Orson Bean
In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.
Alice Walker
I’m an introvert… I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.
Audrey Hepburn
As we see thousands of public and private Christmas trees and nativity displays around the country, they remind us again of the powerful American value built into our Constitution: our freedom of religion.
James Lankford
I had read an article about a couple who had developed a private forest in Coorg, and were working towards preserving it. I wanted to do something similar and wanted to give something back to the nature from which we have stolen so much. So my cousins and I bought 24 acres of land and we planted trees in that.
Atul Kulkarni
Trees are essentially growing chairs. There are lots of primates that sit and sleep in them.
George M. Church
My life growing up was a twisted Bronx version of ‘The Color Purple.’ It had a much different soundtrack and no trees, but that desperation was the same.
Tracy Morgan
I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do.
Willa Cather
Learn from nature. Stuff lives and stuff dies all the time, you know. Animals and birds and flowers. Trees come and go, and we come and go. That’s it. So we should all seize life and make the most of what we have while we can.
Joanna Lumley
If you are in the country, you should notice landmarks – that is, objects which help you to find your way or prevent you getting lost, such as distant hills, church towers, and nearer objects, such as peculiar buildings, trees, gates, rocks, etc.
Robert Baden-Powell
Sky and clouds and trees and little figures relaxing in the perfect rural rhythm of their surroundings: these are the staples of a Gainsborough landscape.
Arthur Smith
I’m a self-taught landscape gardener; it’s a real passion of mine. It’s what I do in my spare time because trees don’t ask questions!
Mira Nair
I am a veteran of the War on Christmas. I am just emerging from a battlefield strewn with dead trees and torn shreds of brightly colored wrapping paper.
Henry Rollins
I have a lot of fruit trees and my own little vegetable garden and chickens. And every time I eat, I bless my food; I say I’m grateful for for it and let it nourish every part of my body.
Gisele Bundchen
I have no neighbours other than animals and Joshua Trees.
Captain Beefheart
Chaga is one of the weirdest mushrooms you may ever see

Chaga is one of the weirdest mushrooms you may ever see. A fungal parasite found on birch trees, Chaga is a hardened, blackened, crusty formation that looks like a bursting tumor.
Paul Stamets
It’s not palm trees and neon signs in Florida; it’s strip malls, highways, hot sun beating down on you.
Patty Jenkins
You can drive an SUV, but there’s a balance. If you do that, maybe use energy-efficient light bulbs at home or just be conscious of switching off lights. If you can afford to drive an SUV, maybe you can afford to make a donation to a wind farm or plant some trees. It’s all about balance.
Orlando Bloom
Storms make trees take deeper roots.
Dolly Parton
Fortunately, in the place where I went out, they had set up a little previously a fence which prevented me finally from smashing against trees. I went out with a broken leg only. A small price to be paid at the time for an accident of this kind.
Jacky Ickx
I had a wild imagination as a kid – wild! – and I was outside all the time, swinging around in trees by myself.
Matt Bomer
A Poem does not grow by jerks. As trees in Spring produce a new ring of tissue, so does every poet put forth a fresh outlay of stuff at the same season.
Wilfred Owen
In spring, the dead trees, roots, and animals come to life again exactly as they were, thus providing hundreds of thousands of examples, specimens, and proofs of the supreme resurrection.
Said Nursi
I lived an idyllic ‘Huckleberry Finn’ life in a tiny town. Climbing trees. Tagging after brothers. Happy. Barefoot on my pony. It was ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’-esque.
Sissy Spacek
If Katie Couric or Anderson Cooper asked me to come on to their shows and give them content every single day, I would do it because that gives me access to a huge population of people that I can hopefully, in some way, plant seeds in fertile soil, and those seeds would grow into oak trees of freedom.
Tim Kennedy
We urgently need more trees, but we appear to believe that the only means of restoring them is planting. We have a national obsession with tree planting, which is in danger of becoming as tokenistic as bamboo toothbrushes and cotton tote bags.
George Monbiot
I did not want to prance around trees singing and dancing. I had to make a living and for that I started with documentaries for government agencies on subjects such as adult education, child welfare, and so on.
Suhasini Mulay
Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer. Leopards, cobras, monkeys, rivers and trees; they all served as my teachers when I lived as a wanderer in the Himalayan foothills.
Radhanath Swami
I have grown up on a diet of sunrise picnics, learning the names of butterflies, planting trees.
Dia Mirza
I love to run outdoors, being outside, enjoying nature, looking up through the trees, being out among the elements… I don’t think there’s a better way to start the day.
David Lammy
Under trees, the urban dweller might restore his troubled soul and find the blessing of a creative pause.
Walter Gropius
I grew up in New York City, so I have, like, an inherent fear of trees, I think, in general.
Scott Snyder
I’m as old as the moon and the stars, and as young as the trees and the lakes. My style comes from looking at what came before me, and from visiting a lot of places.
Afrika Bambaataa
Most books are surplus to the world’s requirements, and I am going to sound very conceited here, but I am trying to write books that aren’t just using up trees.
Michel Faber
Historically, San Franciscans have not valued street trees as much as other communities have.
Gavin Newsom
The simplest way to remove carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, is to grow plants – preferably trees, since they tie up more of the gas in cellulose, meaning it will not return to the air within a season or two. Plants build themselves out of air and water, taking only a tiny fraction of their mass from the soil.
Gregory Benford
Spin is a tricky thing. When you’re trying to avoid it – say, on a tee shot, where sidespin puts you in the trees – it’s easy to make it happen.
Ernie Els
The Caribbean is not an idyll, not to its natives. They draw their working strength from it organically, like trees, like the sea almond or the spice laurel of the heights.
Derek Walcott
Bubbly roles and running around trees don’t satiate an actor’s quest for the best.
Meghana Raj
I can be a woodsman if need be. I grew up very close to some forest, and I spent a lot of my formative years up and down trees, fooling around in the woods. I’m no stranger to that sort of landscape.
Alex Turner
If you’ve ever walked a mile into a virgin forest – you know, like a deep forest where trees have been uncut – the energy is totally different from the shopping mall.
James Redfield
I believe that there are many herbs and many trees that are worth much in Europe for dyes and for medicines; but I do not know, and this causes me great sorrow. Arriving at this cape, I found the smell of the trees and flowers so delicious that it seemed the pleasantest thing in the world.
Christopher Columbus
For captive gorillas, trees should be available to climb and material such as straw, branches, or bamboo supplied for nest building.
Dian Fossey
I usually write in my kitchen, which is a large, octagonal room that looks into woods – three big windows look out into the trees.
Chuck Palahniuk
When you do television, you have this opportunity to drop these subtle hints everywhere. The way you say things, for example, sometimes those seeds turn into trees.
Norman Reedus
We feel the pull of nature very strongly, relating – even unknowingly – feeling in ourselves to bulbs being stirred in frozen ground, or to the branches of dead trees. Perhaps this indivisibility from nature is an important thing to recognize as we go about our business in the world.
Sadie Jones
I get this anxiety in cities and places like that. When

I get this anxiety in cities and places like that. When you grow up in kind of a small town and when you grow up around a lot of green and trees and nature and that sort of thing, sometimes I think it’s a little mentally disconcerting to be around this concrete.
Daniel Bryan
I grew up in the Cayman Islands. I didn’t play video games or watch TV. I would basically come home from school, throw down my backpack, grab my machete, and go hike and chop down trees to make a fort.
Armie Hammer
We still had all our problems growing up as a struggling immigrant family, but Australia was like a breath of fresh air, literally. Playing on grass, having good schools – trees. I didn’t even know trees where I’d come from. So from the day I got here, I’ve loved Australia.
Jimmy Barnes
In the long winter evenings he talked to Ma about the Western country. In the West the land was level, and there were no trees. The grass grew thick and high.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
What the New Yorker calls home would seem like a couple of closets to most Americans, yet he manages not only to live there but also to grow trees and cockroaches right on the premises.
Russell Baker
Sometimes leadership is planting trees under whose shade you’ll never sit. It may not happen fully till after I’m gone. But I know that the steps we’re taking are the right steps.
Jennifer Granholm
Working with plants, trees, fences and walls, if they practice sincerely they will attain enlightenment.
Dogen
In Kenya you’ve got the great birds and monkeys leaping through the trees overhead. It’s a chance to remember what the world is really like.
Joanna Lumley
As a kid, I might have been psycho, I guess, but I used to throw golf balls in the trees and try and somehow make par from them. I thought that was fun.
Tiger Woods
He plants trees to benefit another generation.
Caecilius Statius
Trees will improve property values, take pollutants out of the air, help with water runoff.
Michael Bloomberg
I never liked dolls or played house. I read and wrote, climbed trees, collected rocks, rode my bike, and befriended boys, platonically.
Kate Christensen
One of the best ways to see tree flowers is to climb one of the tallest trees and to get into close, tingling touch with them, and then look broad.
John Muir
How do you find a better actor than Michael McKean? How do you find someone who’s just that good? They don’t grow on trees. Plus, he’s a pleasure to work with, pleasure to be around.
Vince Gilligan
I started my career buying and owning single-family houses, and I know that’s a really tough job. Toilets break. Trees fall. There are so many things that can go wrong. Land, on the other hand, is cheap to manage. It’s painless, really. All you have to do is pay your taxes, and that’s it.
David Lichtenstein
I could never be a country person, sitting around trees trying to write a song. I would rather be in the middle of society, whether it’s growing or crumbling.
Ric Ocasek
When I worked with wildlife a lot in the Eighties and Nineties, I learnt the meaning of patience. And when I worked with trees, I learned the meaning of humility.
James Balog
The plants which stand next to dwarf trees in importance with the Chinese are certainly chrysanthemums, which they manage extremely well, perhaps better than they do any other plant.
Robert Fortune
It was the noise Of ancient trees falling while all was still Before the storm, in the long interval Between the gathering clouds and that light breeze Which Germans call the Wind’s bride.
Charles Godfrey Leland
If you look at it ecologically, deforestation is high on the list of things which bring devastation. You cut down trees to build homes, for fuel, and you end up with no trees left, and you have to move on. If you take the earth as a whole, eventually there’s nowhere to move on to.
Clive Anderson
I believed then – in a deep, easy way that is impossible for me as an adult – that there was more to this world than meets the eye. Trees had spirits; the wind spoke. If you followed a toad or a raven deep into the heart of the forest, they were sure to lead you to something magical.
Jennifer McMahon
Every spring, this country will be reminded of the Lady from Texas. As trees bloom and flowers carpet our nation’s capital, Lady Bird Johnson will be remembered. Only Lady Bird Johnson could, with her vision of a beautiful America, lay claim to spring as her memorial.
David Mixner
We owe each other a debt and we owe each other an obligation, and because of these fundamental American imperatives, there are things that we own in common with each other, and that we are obliged to protect for our posterity. The water. The trees. The wild places in the land. We lose sight of these truths sometimes.
Charlie Pierce
I’m always trying to see the forest for the trees. I try to look at broader brushstrokes and focus on what we can be happy about. That’s my nature.
Margaret Hoover
Students should respect trees just as they respect their mothers.
Vivek
When I look at green trees on a sunny day, I don’t know how to make an interesting picture of that.
Edward Burtynsky
Skiing combines outdoor fun with knocking down trees with your face.
Dave Barry
I was warmed by the sun, rocked by the winds and sheltered by the trees as other Indian babes. I was living peaceably when people began to speak bad of me. Now I can eat well, sleep well and be glad. I can go everywhere with a good feeling.
Geronimo
I used to live in the Bronx, then I lived uptown on 106th St. and Broadway, and finally I moved to Harlem right before it became gentrified. I lived on 120th St. between Fifth and Lenox Aves. in a little brownstone. I knew the neighborhood was changing when they started putting trees in the middle of the block.
Regina Hall
So when you do your family tree and Margaret Cho does hers, and… Wanda Sykes and John Legend… we’re adding to the database that scholars can then draw from to generalize about the complexity of the American experience. And that’s the contribution that family trees make to broader scholarship.
Henry Louis Gates
My brothers and I love playing outside and climbing trees. We really love sports, too – I think football’s probably my favorite.
Madeline Carroll
I have been naturally inclined towards mountains, trees

I have been naturally inclined towards mountains, trees, flowers, and rivers.
Ruskin Bond
Just as our forefathers saved and invested to build what we, the current generation, are enjoying today, so, too, we must plant trees so that our sons and daughters, and their sons and daughters, can enjoy the shade.
Lee Hsien Loong
After music, trees are my passion. My great-grandfather was a forester, so maybe it is genetic. My father would take me for walks in the forest and sometimes I would play truant with him. ‘You won’t learn anything in a communist school, my boy,’ he would say. He loved trees too.
Krzysztof Penderecki
I grew up in the same place as my mother, seeing the same trees my mother saw when she was at work; the flowers I picked were the flowers that my grandma planted. We have different styles; I wouldn’t make the same clothes that my mum made, or my grandma, but we have the same taste.
Margherita Missoni
‘I am a bad mother.’ Every Christmas, this is what I think because the holiday season fills me with such anxiety. I’m sure that other mothers are happily baking cookies, decorating trees, and finding perfect gifts for everyone.
Tess Gerritsen
There is something about being in a remote town where anything other than green fields, trees and Saturday football club is very exciting and thrilling.
Josh O’Connor
I grew up surrounded by generously yielding plum trees, and as a family we were constantly on the hunt for inspired ways to use up the lovely plums before age got the better of them.
Rachel Khoo
We were raised without movies, theater or music. We had only nature, the hills, the trees. When I got on the set of ‘Manon,’ I wasn’t star-struck because I didn’t know what a star was.
Emmanuelle Beart
For all that we can see from the road in China, there is a lot that we cannot see. We miss what’s behind the trees, the cover-ups, the darker side of things – the ingredients that so often drive a reporting trip.
Evan Osnos
How long will we keep making films where hero-heroine is dancing around trees?
Nawazuddin Siddiqui
When it comes to Washington, most people tend to think first of politics. But Washington is also a geographic and physical place. It is, for instance, one of the few cities of the world where you can talk endlessly about trees.
Katharine Graham
What I was trying to convey there was the kind of waste land that was left after the war. It was a bit like one always thinks of war, you know, stark scenery and no birds, no trees, no leaves, nothing living. And just emptiness.
George Martin
Before my mother was a King, she climbed trees and wrestled with boys. And won. Even as a child, Coretta Scott demonstrated that her gender would not deter her success, nor did it detract from her strength.
Bernice King
Votes are like trees, if you are trying to build a forest. If you have more trees than you have forests, then at that point the pollsters will probably say you will win.
Dan Quayle
Having photographed the landscape for a number of years and specifically working with trees and in the forest I found, without consciously thinking about it, that it was a great learning experience for me in terms of organizing elements.
John Sexton
My roots are African. The birds I remember, the fruits I ate, the trees I climbed, they’re African.
Teresa Heinz
With the demise of the biblical religions that have provided the American people with their core values since their country’s inception, we are reverting to the pagan worldview. Trees and animals are venerated, while man is simply one more animal in the ecosystem – and largely a hindrance, not an asset.
Dennis Prager
When I was 7, I went to school in Switzerland because everyone on my mom’s side of the family lives there. Then we were back in Australia, in Queensland. That’s where we had the chance to have lots of different animals. I spent a lot of time living in nature and building cubby houses in big old trees by the ocean.
Isabel Lucas
I just do my day job and go home and plant trees.
Andrew Lincoln
In 1908, there was a persuasive demonstration of the power of high-speed, low-mass asteroids in rural Siberia. The Tunguska impactor iced millions of pine trees and about a zillion mosquitoes – and was no larger than an office building.
Seth Shostak
I love running around trees as much as a serious role.
Divya Dutta
Trees and bones are constantly reforming themselves along lines of stress. This algorithm has been put into a software program that’s now being used to make bridges lightweight, to make building beams lightweight.
Janine Benyus
The Trees was four complete nuts. We didn’t have a damn thing in common except insanity. So we fought a lot. And we had two brothers – who fought like brothers.
Mark Lanegan
For years I drove a big Ford F250 pickup. That was my ride because two-thirds of my work was wood work, and I’m always driving up to Northern California, where I harvest salvaged trees.
Nick Offerman
Australians were unique due to our corals, our apples, our gum trees and our kangaroos.
Harold Edward Holt
There are thousands of ways to take action. For example, plant trees, pick up litter, join an organisation or movement that makes a difference and especially try to influence adults and put pressure on people in power.
Greta Thunburg
Young designers don’t grow on trees.
Isabella Blow
My mom is a country lady. She wants to be in the trees.
Bam Adebayo
The smartest thing I ever did as a writer was hire a retired conservation agent to blaze a hiking trail for me. It’s nothing fancy – just a narrow path that meanders for a little over a mile through the woods near my home. But that trail through the trees has become my therapist, my personal trainer, and my best editor.
Kate Klise
Good parts just don’t fall off trees. I try to be very careful about what sort of projects I attack. There’s an audience out there that expects high standards from me.
David Jason
I’m making strides to have dialogue with life. I’m walking down a garden path, something like that. And you’re looking at the trees, and then you start to look at them through your inner eye.
Wayne Shorter
There's a book called 'The Baron in the Trees.' A frien

There’s a book called ‘The Baron in the Trees.’ A friend got that for me because I was kind of a tree-dwelling nomad for a bit. I kind of associate myself with the book.
Borns
When I was six, the Korean War broke out, and all the classrooms were destroyed by war. We studied under the trees or in whatever buildings were left.
Ban Ki-moon
On pavements and the bark of trees I have found whole worlds.
Mark Tobey
When I first started, it was really an innocent response to the needs of women in rural areas. When we started planting trees to meet their needs, there was nothing beyond that. I did not see all the issues that I have to come to deal with.
Wangari Maathai
Learned to read, and for a while as a kid, you think books are just leaves on trees. Then suddenly, you think a human being is making that, and maybe you could do that.
Anthony Doerr
Every time I found an egg to eat, or when I survived a storm in which trees were collapsing all around me, I felt that it was Providence. I don’t need to believe – I know.
Yossi Ghinsberg
It ends all things: birds, trees, flowers, mountain tops, and business; it grinds stones to sand, and as terrible as it is, and it’s the most beautiful thing we have in our lives – time.
Brandon Webb
Aaah, summer – that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It’s a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.
Darell Hammond
Love doesn’t grow on trees like apples in Eden – it’s something you have to make. And you must use your imagination too.
Joyce Cary
Nature is impersonal, awe-inspiring, elegant, eternal. It’s geometrically perfect. It’s tiny and gigantic. You can travel far to be in a beautiful natural setting, or you can observe it in your backyard – or, in my case, in the trees lining New York City sidewalks, or in the clouds above skyscrapers.
Gretchen Rubin
I want to find more ways of planting trees and helping fight against deforestation.
Alison Sudol
During the mid-1990s, I collected thousands of hackberry fruits from trees all across the Midwest. I chemically analyzed each seed in order to formulate an equation relating the hackberry’s mineral makeup to the summer temperature under which it grew.
Hope Jahren
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
Mother Teresa
Driving through much of the southern part of the U.S. reminds me of where I grew up in Canada. The trees, homes, sense of community… I love the South.
Laurie Holden
Hugging trees has a calming effect on me. I’m talking about enormous trees that will be there when we are all dead and gone. I’ve hugged trees in every part of this little island.
Gerry Adams
If we’re destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff, there’s got to be a very powerful energy to fight that. I think we need more love in the world.
Ellen DeGeneres
The almond grows very contentedly alongside olives. I discovered that while in Israel – both trees require only sparse watering once established.
Carol Drinkwater
For me, one of the major reasons to move beyond just the planting of trees was that I have tendency to look at the causes of a problem. We often preoccupy ourselves with the symptoms, whereas if we went to the root cause of the problems, we would be able to overcome the problems once and for all.
Wangari Maathai
Coffee connects us in so many ways – to each other, to our senses, and to the earth that supports the coffee trees.
Rohan Marley
I had always planned to make a large painting of the early spring, when the first leaves are at the bottom of the trees, and they seem to float in space in a wonderful way. But the arrival of spring can’t be done in one picture.
David Hockney
I’ve never been more terrified than when I learned how to paramotor. They attached this machine to my back, as if I was a stuntman in a James Bond movie, and I had to fly over all these trees and patches of concrete in Cirencester.
Konnie Huq
Seeing family is what brings me peace. If I’m not traveling home on my day off, I love going to Central Park to be around trees and throw a Frisbee with my boyfriend.
Kara Lindsay
Christ’s fishermen should not meddle with men’s law, for men’ s law contains sharp stones and trees by which the net of God is broken, and the fish wend out of the world.
John Wycliffe
I was never one of those little girls who played with baby dolls and picked names for her firstborn. I was playing in the mud with my dog, doing backflips, and climbing trees.
Jane Fallon
To tell you the truth, I believe everything – tigers, trees, stones – are sentient in one way or another. You’d never catch me idly kicking a stone, for example.
Mary Oliver
I’m interested in raw land and trees and fresh air and rivers and lots of animals around them.
Kent McCord
Only bad golfers are lucky. They’re the ones bouncing balls off trees, curbs, turtles and cars. Good golfers have bad luck. When you hit the ball straight, a funny bounce is bound to be unlucky.
Lee Trevino
I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.
e. e. cummings
The Amazon is not just a set of trees. It is a set of 25 million people. If we don’t create real economic opportunities for them, the practical result is to encourage disorganized economic activities that results in the further destruction of the rain forest.
Roberto Unger
It’s either I have to be in the trees or in the ocean, otherwise I lose my mind. I have to get connected with nature, otherwise I don’t feel very good. And that’s what life’s about, feeling good, so nature knows best for me.
Greg Cipes
Again, we saw in Bosnia – we had U.N. peacekeepers tied to trees, being taken hostage. The fact is they don’t have the type of deliberate and authoritative rule that I think is needed to get the job done.
Peter T. King
My days are jam-packed with carpools, classroom assista

My days are jam-packed with carpools, classroom assistance, tending to chickens, dogs and seven acres of olive trees!
Carre Otis
I watch people throw aluminum cans in the trash, and I think of all the stories I’ve heard about the over-mining of aluminum, the erosion that happens, and the trees that fall down.
Dar Williams
I’ve been accident-prone since I was a kid climbing trees and falling out. I’ve come off a few motorcycles.
Vic Reeves
When I was growing up, kids would go outside and play all day and invent things. And my brothers and I pretended our picnic table was a ship one summer. Our bikes were horses, and our trees were forts. We turned everything in the world into make-believe.
Mary Pope Osborne
You know, it’s kind of hard because I really – I see kids on their Rollerblades and their bikes, and just running around, climbing trees, and I used to do that. And I loved doing that.
Mattie Stepanek
Autumn is much redder in North America and east Asia than it is in northern Europe, and this can’t be explained by temperature differences alone. These areas also have a greater proportion of ancient tree lineages surviving: trees have gone extinct at a higher rate in Europe compared with those other areas.
Alice Roberts
If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees.
Hal Borland
In most mills, only the best portions of the best trees are used, while the ruins are left on the ground to feed great fires which kill much of what is left of the less desirable timber, together with the seedlings on which the permanence of the forest depends.
John Muir
I always wanted to be a Californian. In my wildest dreams, I always liked California – it’s the place where oranges grows on trees! Fruit just falls off the trees.
Eric Burdon
The actor should not play a part. Like the Aeolian harps that used to be hung in the trees to be played only by the breeze, the actor should be an instrument played upon by the character he depicts.
Alla Nazimova
I’ve always liked trees. And then, growing up, I took an interest in ecology, hedges being destroyed, the landscape being turned into prairies.
Clive Anderson
Green is my favorite. And it’s my favorite because it’s the color of my wife’s eyes, grass, trees, life, and money, and mother earth!
Casper Van Dien
You know, I like to climb trees and ride bikes and play.
Anthony Kiedis
Tinsel on our Christmas trees is a Hart family staple started by my grandmother, Helen Hart.
Natalya Neidhart
On the environmental front there’s concern about global warming and high levels of carbon dioxide, and trees take in CO2 and store carbon.
Clive Anderson
I realized I was tired of singing about trees and flowers. I wanted to sing about real life. From then on, nobody could tell me anything was better than blues.
Robert Cray
We’re planting trees to break up the concrete jungle. We’re building public transportation and affordable housing.
Kevin de Leon
I wasn’t going to get such a nice car – I was going to get a cute little hybrid or something, keep the trees happy – but then my grandfather died, and it was all: retail therapy!
Chris Colfer
There’s nothing good about ash dieback, but there is one useful thing that could be done: wherever possible, leave the dead trees to stand. There is more life in a dead tree than in a living tree: around 2,000 animal species in the UK rely on dead or dying wood for their survival.
George Monbiot
You know what I love the smell of? Christmas trees and pine. I always have a pine candle even if it’s not Christmas.
Brooklyn Decker
Native trees are so important to our ecosystem.
Felix Dennis
I can’t see the forest through the trees, except the trees are people.
Sloane Crosley
There are cities that get by on their good looks, offer climate and scenery, views of mountains or oceans, rockbound or with palm trees. And there are cities like Detroit that have to work for a living.
Elmore Leonard
Nature promotes mutualism. The flower nourishes the bee. The river waters quench the thirst of all living beings. And trees provide a welcoming home to so many birds and animals. There is a rhythm to this togetherness.
Ram Nath Kovind
April in Paris, chestnuts in blossom, holiday tables under the trees.
E. Y. Harburg
I was always in hospital as a kid: I had a tumour on my knee, lots of broken bones. I loved climbing trees.
Abbey Lee Kershaw
I sincerely believe that there’s room for cutting down trees for forestry and grazing, so as we all get to eat. Everyone has to compromise.
Steve Irwin
I love to think that animals and humans and plants and fishes and trees and stars and the moon are all connected.
Gloria Vanderbilt
Research gathered over recent years has highlighted the countless benefits to people, wildlife and the environment that come from planting trees and creating new woodland habitat. It’s obvious trees are good things.
Clive Anderson
My favorite thing to do in L.A. is to be in a car with friends listening to music. The perfect time is twilight, when the setting sun is filtering through the palm trees. Back in the day, we’d be listening to the Vandals, X, or Farside. Now it would be L.A.-based bands like Dum Dum Girls, Foxygen, or Ty Segall.
Liz Goldwyn
Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.
Indra Devi
What you compose with is neither here nor there, you co

What you compose with is neither here nor there, you compose with words, or you compose with stone plants and trees, or you compose with events; the Sheriff’s officer, or whatever.
Ian Hamilton Finlay
Though the redwoods in Muir Woods are hauntingly beautiful trees, they are relatively small and not very tall, at least for redwoods.
Richard Preston
I grew up in the old neighborhood of Beijing where you had a courtyard and trees. Actually, the whole of Beijing was a garden – the Forbidden City – and the lakes and gardens in the city center were all artificial.
Ma Yansong
If someone were to think that trees are made to support the sky, they would all seem too short.
Franz Grillparzer
Trees are being saved because of the Kindle.
Paul Hawken
I’ve taken a mail packet boat along the southern Newfoundland coast and spent some time on St. Pierre and Miquelon watching the seal colonies. I like pine trees. I like cold rivers.
Joseph Monninger
When I started competing at X Games, there was so much chaos that often me and my girlfriends would go into the trees and just take a moment.
Jamie Anderson
If your parents only listen to jazz or folk, you’re like one of those trees you see in botanic gardens that have wire frames on them – you grow into that shape, you follow it or you have to break away from it. But I didn’t have influences to embrace or kick against – I also had no idea what anything was.
KT Tunstall
Giant oak trees… have deep root systems that can extend two-and-one-half times their height. Such trees rarely are blown down regardless of how violent the storms may be.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit.
D. Elton Trueblood
Just the whole thing of getting up in the morning – I love the sunshine, I love the palm trees. I’m that kind of guy. I like to drive around with the top down and just enjoy life. I never did that before, so it’s a beautiful thing.
Yngwie Malmsteen
At 16, when I was at Henry M. Gunn High School, I had a crush on the English teacher, and my grades improved dramatically. This great school had only 400 students, mostly children of Stanford professors, and it was more usual to have classes under one of the oak trees dotted around the campus than in the classroom.
Caroline Lawrence
There’s nothing good on the news. You’re not telling me CNN is all cats in trees, are you? Nothing can be that good if Piers Morgan is in it, you know what I mean?
Noel Gallagher
Trees go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!
John Muir
There’s a lot of pressure and criticism in a crisis, but you can’t miss the wood for the trees.
Elvira Nabiullina
Los Angeles, the sun shines a lot, and it’s blue, and there’s palm trees; it’s a bit like Sydney, I guess, but the underbelly is a vicious, mean, cruel, awful place.
Loudon Wainwright III
We often forget that everything we see, animate or inanimate, is a visual manifestation of the work of our invisible God. We have become so accustomed to trees, mountains, sky, air, water, flowers, animals, vegetables and people that we no longer see them for what they are – God’s work.
Mother Angelica
Trees, though they are cut and loped, grow up again quickly, but if men are destroyed, it is not easy to get them again.
Pericles
When we distributed the paper and crayons, they were fighting over the blue crayon. Everyone wanted to start with the blue, and that was the water. One drawing shows the trees under water. I was really moved.
Connie Sellecca
I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything. The sun came up like gold through the trees, and I felt like I was in heaven.
Harriet Tubman
I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself.
Edward Steichen
When I was 15, I still liked climbing trees and hiding in cupboards.
Victoria Coren Mitchell
I was amazed at the house that I grew up in; it looks practically identical to the way it was, but I couldn’t recognize it because of the size of the trees.
Jim Fowler
There are trees of a thousand sorts, and all have their several fruits; and I feel the most unhappy man in the world not to know them, for I am well assured that they are all valuable. I bring home specimens of them, and also of the land.
Christopher Columbus
Any fool can destroy trees. They cannot run away; and if they could, they would still be destroyed – chased and hunted down as long as fun or a dollar could be got out of their bark hides, branching horns, or magnificent bole backbones.
John Muir
The places that are most likely to grow trees for carbon sequestration are places where trees aren’t growing now.
Robert Jackson
Trees are our closest relatives. What trees exhale, we inhale; what we exhale, they inhale. They are half our respiratory system.
Jaggi Vasudev
I have about 1,700 species of trees, almost everything that can grow in our climate.
Krzysztof Penderecki
Who has seen the wind? Neither you nor I but when the trees bow down their heads, the wind is passing by.
Christina Rossetti
The more often we see the things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
What I remember the most really was just running wild there. Barefooted, swimming in dirty lakes, selling fruit, picking mango trees, hoping not to get caught because they don’t take kindly to thieves in Africa.
Akon
If you could eat portions of pine trees, you could elim

If you could eat portions of pine trees, you could eliminate corn in many ways.
Homaro Cantu
We know the Lord makes His servants bold. The young boy Joseph who saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, in a grove of trees was transformed into a spiritual giant.
Henry B. Eyring
The history of blacks is complicated, fragmented, disturbing to contemplate – not a neat trail of challenges met or of felled trees blocking the path to the mountain top.
Darryl Pinckney
We could build just about anything that you could dream of. But that’s not the question. The thing that Beats provides us is a head start. They provide us with incredible people that don’t grow on trees.
Tim Cook
Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.
Henry David Thoreau
A dead tree, cut into planks and read from one end to the other, is a kind of line graph, with dates down one side and height along the other, as if trees, like mathematicians, had found a way of turning time into form.
Alice Oswald
Every summer my husband and I pack our suitcases, load our kids into the car, and drive from tense, crowded New York City to my family’s cottage in Maine. It’s on an island, with stretches of sea and sandy beaches, rocky coasts, and pine trees. We barbecue, swim, lie around, and try to do nothing.
Hope Davis
Miami is just really fun whenever I go there. It’s like this post-apocalyptic Barbie world: everything is pink, and there’re palm trees everywhere. But then there are also all these people in crazy sunglasses, warehouses with sick parties where all the girls are covered in spikes and black leather. It’s a very weird place.
Grimes
The difficulty with this conversation is that it’s very different from most of the ones I’ve had of late. Which, as I explained, have mostly been with trees.
Douglas Adams
A great thing about these trees is that they are excellent for cleaning, both groundwater, and of course, air.
Mike Lowry
The Japanese put houses in among the trees and allowed nature to gain the ascendancy in any composition.
Stephen Gardiner
My grandmother had mango trees in her backyard when I was a child. So it’s always been an ingredient that I’m familiar with. It can be used in so many ways. My kids absolutely love it for a snack or in a savory dish.
Ayesha Curry
There is no substitute for a real location when you’re trying to shoot the jungle. You can’t just go anywhere. You’ve got to go where it’s lush and green and there really is those mountain ranges, the trees and the ocean.
Rachelle Lefevre
When you get into your car, shut the door and be there for just half a minute. Breathe, feel the energy inside your body, look around at the sky, the trees. The mind might tell you, ‘I don’t have time.’ But that’s the mind talking to you. Even the busiest person has time for 30 seconds of space.
Eckhart Tolle
A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first.
Chanakya
In light of the documented benefits of urban trees, we must also ensure that we increase green spaces in underserved communities throughout the city that lack adequate parks and other green spaces.
Letitia James
I used to climb trees and ride my bike way too fast downhill.
KiKi Layne
Christians get trees. Jews get bushes. To stay in good standing with the Tribe, you’ve got to refer to a Christmas tree as a Hanukkah bush.
Alan Colmes
Twine from trees and plants can make good floss!
Jenna Morasca
I know more about wheat and olive trees than I do about politics.
Ariel Sharon
They all went down in droves because just scenes of palm trees and beaches can get pretty boring.
James MacArthur
A lot of parts of L.A. are interchangeable with suburbs in Joburg. Very big, ostentatious houses with palm trees and lawns. Lawns are very important. Never underestimate lawns.
Neill Blomkamp
There’s a general culture in this country to cut all the trees. It makes me so angry because everyone is cutting and no one is planting.
Wangari Maathai
I grew up in the Northeast; I’ve seen hurricanes before and trees down and cars destroyed.
Casey Neistat
Wood is weirdly a big passion of mine. I really love it, all the way from trees to a finished table. The fact that it was alive and that each piece is different.
Rupert Friend
Why are there trees I never walk under but large and melodious thoughts descend upon me?
Walt Whitman
Redwoods have an enormous surface area that extends upward into space because they have a propensity to do something called reiteration. A redwood is a fractal. And as they put out limbs, the limbs burst into small trees, copies of the redwood.
Richard Preston
There were many fruit trees in our house when I was growing up and I never missed climbing any of them.
Babu Antony
I have a lot of palm trees, because they say to me holidays and ocean. I grew up very poor and I had an aunt who would go on holiday and send me postcards of palm trees and I would pin them to the wall, so I’ve gone from that fantasy to reality.
Udo Kier
Brittany can hardly claim the attention of the tourist as a superlatively beautiful country. The way in which trees are clipped and tortured out of shape disfigures the sylvan landscape; and of mountain scenery, there is none.
Sabine Baring-Gould
I tend to like the last sentence I just wrote, which is: ‘It was late in the fall and the trees lining our driveway had turned red like a row of burning matches.’
Jess Walter
There weren't any schools in my village, so I learnt to

There weren’t any schools in my village, so I learnt to read and write from my mother. I played in the fields, sowing seeds, working with animals, jumping in the river, climbing trees.
Sonam Wangchuk
We’ve all heard of the surveys revealing that teenagers think cows lay eggs, and others where children can identify more brand logos than trees, by a staggering margin. My view is that children will form a significant part of the green fightback. They instinctively understand the value of the environment.
Zac Goldsmith
When you buy carbon offsets, you pay to take planet-warming carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere in exchange for the greenhouse gases you put in. For example, you can put money toward replanting trees, which absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Tatiana Schlossberg
There is no horizon in Toledo. There are too many trees.
P. J. O’Rourke
What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives?
E. M. Forster
My father being an outdoors person, he used to take us on quite a few adventures thorugh the wild areas down there, introducing us to alligators and rattlesnakes and all the trees and plants.
Jim Fowler
I’m not an extreme tree-hugger. I do believe trees grow and are a useful agricultural product that can be harvested without damaging the ecology and wildlife.
John C. Malone
The silencing of the rainforests is a double deforestation, not only of trees but a deforestation of the mind’s music, medicine and knowledge.
Jay Griffiths
I don’t see the point of photographing trees or rocks because they’re there and anyone can photograph them if they’re prepared to hang around and wait for the light.
David Bailey
I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees. The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets.
Hamlin Garland
I ended up in Colorado working in wilderness fire prevention. My job was to run around with a chainsaw and cut down trees during a blaze. It was really fun. When I first got out there, that’s when I realized how passable of a male I could be.
