Did you read yesterday’s New York Times Op-Ed Why Trees Matter, written by friend of A Life’s Work Jim Robbins?
Well click the link and check it out. You may be surprised to learn (or re-learn) all the good things trees do for the planet and its inhabitants. I re-learned that aspirin comes to us thanks to willow trees. I knew there was a reason it was my favorite tree.
Jim ends the piece with one of my favorite quotes.
“When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second-best time? Today.”
Jim Robbins’ book, The Man Who Planted Trees: Lost Groves, Champion Trees, and an Urgent Plan to Save the Planet, will hit books stores on April 17. You can pre-order it on Amazon.
