Trees be Company : An Anthology of Poetry Paperback
Edited by Angela King, Susan Clifford
Part of the Trees, Rivers and Fields series
Half of the ancient woodlands present in 1945 have been destroyed, replanted with conifers or cleared for cereal production, roads and building development.
The intention of this book is to present evidence of our deep cultural need for trees and woods and to inspire people to take care of them.
Trees, and indeed woods, know no distinction between town and country; they are close to everyone.
If we are to combat local pollution, make even the slightest impact on global warming, enjoy our surroundings and share them with many other creatures, we need trees: trees here and trees now.
If we are to nourish more than our prosaic needs we need their longevity, their beauty, their generosity.
Trees stand for nature and culture. We shall stand or fall with them.
