What a little snow will do

Fresh Snow in the Sun

Fresh Snow Reveals a Nest

Richard St. Barbe Baker would often quote Henry Jackson van Dyke Jr. (November 10, 1852 – April 10, 1933) and here is an excerpt from his poem Salute to the Trees.

To every living thing a voice was given
Distinct and personal. The forest trees
Were not more varied in their shades of green
Than in their tones of speech; and every bird
That nested in their branches had a song
Unknown to other birds and all his own.

Henry Van Dyke

The voice of conscience is so delicate that it is easy to stifle it; but it is also so clear that it is impossible to mistake it.~ Ann Louise Germaine de Staël

And he woke to find it was all a dream.
For there in his evergreen dress he stood,
A pointed fir in the midst of the wood!
His branches were sweet with the balsam smell,
His needles were green when the white snow fell.
~Henry Van Dyke

“No one talks more passionately about his rights than he who in the depths of his soul doubts whether he has any. By enlisting passion on his side he wants to stifle his reason and its doubts: thus he will acquire a good conscience and with it success among his fellow men.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

The afforestation area received its name in honour of the great humanitarian, Richard St. Barbe Baker. Richard St. Barbe Baker (9 October 1889 – 9 June 1982) was an English forester, environmental activist and author, who contributed greatly to worldwide reforestation efforts. As a leader, he founded an organization, Men of the Trees, still active today, whose many chapters carry out reforestation internationally. {Wikipedia} Email is StBarbeBaker AT yahoo.com to reach the Stewards of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area
