TREES UNDER STRESS

In the wild, trees are under attack
from a variety of sources
  beyond their control . . .

From disease and bacteria
(some beautiful forms, like ornate burls).
From sharp-toothed beavers
(from which they rarely survive).
And forest fires
(which help renew new forests.)

The most deadly form of stress
is mankind, 
who clears vast acres of trees
for his own profit.

Trees will always need our protection.
