This poster is my ode to the tree.

Why Trees? Why now?

Trees give.

Trees reduce the “Greenhouse Effect” and act as carbon “sinks.”
They prevent or reduce soil erosion and water pollution.
Trees reduce water temperatures and prevent or reduce bank erosion and silt.
Trees recharge ground water and sustain stream flow.
Properly managed forests provide lumber, plywood and other wood products on a sustained yield basis.
Trees significantly decrease noise pollution along busy thoroughfares and intersections.

During a 50-year life span, a single tree will generate $30,000 in oxygen, recycle $35,000 worth of water, and clean up $60,000 worth of air pollution!

Our planet is currently losing over 15 billion trees each year. Just one acre of newly planted trees absorbs 2.5 tons of CO2 annually.

Sustainer of life, cleaner of air, moderator of climate, and home to thousands of species, where would we be without trees? And, where would be we without the wisdom to honor them?

Inspired by stories of the Panchatantra, the parrots in picture, are a-buzz with these stories, passing them on from generation to generation.

The mother elephant relies on her legendary memory and wisdom to leads her family through the complicated jungle of life.
