There are few living things more beautiful and essential than trees. They live lives far longer than ours, lives in which they feed millions of animals and breath oxygen into the atmosphere while towering higher and higher above their surroundings. They are amazing lifeforms, from the grain of their bark to the complex network of branches supporting their lush foliage.
