Our previous post, To act without casting a long shadow featured a new environmental charity, the Cynefin Foundation, one of whose activities will be tree planting. By a happy coincidence, we found the above graphic which details the role of trees in the ecosystem that supports us. While we want a fundamental system change so we can eventually live in a more just, sane and sustainable world, there are two things we can do in the here and now. One is to do whatever is possible to stop destroying trees. Another is to support initiatives such as community woods / forests that will increase the number of trees, benefiting all of us.
