Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountains and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can learn from books.

For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.

Another set of good ones.

There are several "tree farms" around here. They grow "christmas" trees and the farmers know how to propegate a sustainable crop.

When I still drove, I used to visit once or twice a year a local tree farm. Not at Christmas, but during spring and summer. It is amazing what a great variety of wildlife and flowers exists there. Birds of all kinds, including quail and pheasants; rabbits, deer, foxes and butterflies you did not see anymore elsewhere. The grass got mowed twice a year, once early in the spring and then again in fall. Trees where trimmed once in a while, but overall the place was left alone and nobody got disturbed, hunting was allowed for deer only when the population got to large, threatened the trees and due to lack of predators got out of hand, something which happens here all the time.

Our area has changed from dairy farms, when I was growing up, to tree farms and horse farms. The tree farms, mostly owned by Princeton Nursery far outnumber the horse farms. Quite a few Christmas tree farms too.
