Trees nourish the soul and allow us to breathe - the oxygen tank of the world

I take a lot of photographs of trees because they make me happy.  The Christmas tree in winter, the maple leaf trees in the fall, the Willow trees in the summer and the Magnolia and lilac trees in the spring. 

   
Some of my favourite trees are the giant redwoods in California and BC and the beautiful oak trees in Ontario and elsewhere.  
 
Maple wood is one of the densest and strongest hardwoods, yet bamboo is 2-3 times stronger while still being quite a bit lighter. 

When I am walking in the forest, I feel a spiritual feeling much as other people who go to church.  A calm comes over me and I am content with life.
