I found this photo online. It made me even more convinced that we need to think twice about cutting down trees that were not deliberately cultivated for timber.
This tree was felled in America, in 1891.
It started growing in 550 AD.
Before Mohammed was born.
Before The Battle of Hastings
Before America was discovered.
Before the Declaration of Independence.
Before The Battle of Waterloo.
Before the US Civil War.
Compared to that tree, we humans live our entire lives in the blink of an eye.
