?כי האדם עץ השדה
For is the tree of the field a man?Deuteronomy 20:19
For me? Yes it is. The basis of ethical introspection, connection with past generations, traditions and future growth.
Having moved from the colder and wetter regions of the New World, to the arid and ancient climate of the Old, I discovered new trees that I had never experienced before. Tree that resonate with me. Especially the straight backbone of the cypress, connecting Heaven and Earth, and the collected wisdom of the olive tree.
