Conversely some see trees are considered as being irreplaceable, deserving rigid protection at all costs and not to be touched.
We used to rely heavily on trees and the timber that trees provide. We had a high regard and respect for them, even though we cut them down and turned them into beautiful and functional objects.
But we have more recently and sadly taken them for granted. Now we are losing them, due to disease and neglect. We must change the overall attitude and feelings toward trees.
