Longleaf Pines

January 16th, 2011 · No Comments

Tree planting yesterday of 1670 longleaf pine trees with the Sierra Club and Big Thicket Association. The Longleaf has much of the same characteristics as we do; the very young are small amidst a big world, more a grass than a tree. Teenagers are a bit unwieldy, tall and spindly with a big mass of hairlike needles on top, trying (and failing) to look like they belong. Adults are tall and majestic, responsible for caretaking a whole family of critters growing beneath them.

After the hard work, Maxine Johnston (above) invited the group for dinner (and, in our case, cartwheels, chalk drawings, and fun with lightsticks)
