A Quote by Roger Swain on certainty, death, friendship, and people

People in suburbia see trees differently than foresters do. They cherish every one. It is useless to speak of the probability that a certain tree will die when the tree is in someone's backyard . . . . You are talking about a personal asset, a friend, a monument, not about board feet of lumber.

A Quote by Roger Swain on dreams, enthusiasm, experience, home, learning, and seasons
