There’s something magical and mystical about trees. They appear in many fantasies as symbols of wisdom, or power, or mystery. Sometimes they create a dark wood, sometimes they filter light down to those willing to receive it. Trees provide life to many animals and environments. They can be ancient, sometimes thousands of years old, their years hinting at wisdom hidden among their branches. Whatever it is about trees that makes them so fascinating, they are special organisms that help shape the earth in many ways. Join us as we bring you stories about trees, animals, and the moon.
