I write "A Year With the Trees" to bring an awareness to the world about the importance of trees to the future of our planet. Planting and being stewards of trees native to where you live is of vital importance for the health of animals, insects, birds, all life, including our own.
I am studying the trees that are native to Southern Appalachia, where I live. This blog illustrates 92 trees and why we need to be responsible to keep native plant communities alive and well.

How Do Trees Inspire Me?
How do trees inspire me?
The PawPaw flower
Trees inspire me to be grateful for this moment,
to pause and see the beauty as a bud turns into flower.
Trees inspire me to learn their names.
To explore all the different colors , flowers and fruits they wear each season.
Black Locust Flowers
Trees inspire me to do share with others that we are all one sharing one planet.
