I’m feeling a bit like a sook today so my spirit is lifted when Dan tells me about this project he is working on based on the Hall of North American Forests. A giant sequoia tree that was cut down in 1891 which is more than 1,400 years old that is displayed in the museum with historical events marked on its rings. I love the idea as it recognises the survival of nature and how it prevails over the wars, disasters and feuds between civilisations, countries and people.
Fast forward many years later, we continue to think little about the forests that we have and how many stories these trees have lived to tell. I’m watching closely, with faith that UNESCO will not delist a World Heritage listed forest area in Tasmania. It will spell a sad day for us if we allowed this environmental vandalism happens.
