Save The Trees, Please

Linda Hahn is an excellent writer and a passable researcher! She has a blog, too!

Please More Trees!


Plant A Tree Or Two

The first rule of nature should be save the trees. They are an important part of the circle of life. Trees, nature's condos for the little guys, are bursting with life.

Squirrels, birds, and bugs count on them for a place to live. Get to know a tree today!

All is in the beholder's eyes.

Ok then.

Flat Stanley & The Redwoods


Redwoods Are Fantastic!

There is nothing quite like looking up, up, and up into a redwood. When my friend, Flat Stanley, was visiting me from Ohio, he was amazed by these giant trees.

Here Flat Stanley is posing with a baby redwood tree; it's approximately 150 feet high. Flat Stan is about 7 inches high and 3 inches wide.

Flat Stanley is a paper boy. He was squished by a bookcase maybe, so his parents mail him hither and yon to study geography. He was part of a project for my niece, Emily.

Redwood trees grow along the California coast.

Save The Trees

1. Cut back on your paper usage - go electronic.

2. Plant trees.

3. Cut your energy footprint down, even just a little bit.

Trees are part of the circle of life. They are a very important part of our world. The circle cannot continue when pieces are missing from it. Then what happens when the trees are all gone and exist no more? Where do we go from there?

Scroll to Continue

What happens when they're all gone? I believe it would have a profoundly negative effect on all life forms, including humans. It would be the beginning of the end.

I love trees and hate to see their destruction. Say it loud, say it proud!

sukkran trichy from Trichy/Tamil Nadu on July 11, 2014:

i love trees. trees function as sound barriers to reduce noise pollution. they also provide us food, shade and protect life to people and animals. thanks for this informative lens.

sierradawn lm on December 20, 2013:

Some of my very best friends are trees! Thank you for this beautiful lens. I have planted too many trees to count, everywhere that I have ever lived. I love visiting them to see how big and beautiful they all have grown.

David Edward Lynch from Port Elizabeth, South Africa on December 06, 2013:

I really enjoy walking in forests where lots of trees abound, when I get the opportunity.

TanoCalvenoa on October 04, 2013:

So glad you mentioned Muir Woods. I lived in Northern California for two years as a kid and I've been back several times since. The coastal redwood forests are my favorite place on Earth.

David Stone from New York City on August 22, 2013:

Growing up in the country, I had as special feel for trees and the sense being surrounded by them with their sounds and scents defining a forest.

marktplaatsshop on June 28, 2013:

this is a beautiful lens, I enjoyd reading it, thanks for sharing, In front of my house I have a fig tree, that one year it gives figs and other year does not, they are great in taste, but this year I think they will not ripe since it still is 15 degrees and summer stays far away

anonymous on June 19, 2013:

Yes - very beautiful lens -

Sharon Bellissimo from Toronto, Canada on March 10, 2013:

Your pictures are beautiful. I have planted many trees in my time. Love trees!

tomoxby on February 28, 2013:

As others have said the picture with the gentle waves on a lake is amazing. And yes I have and lot of trees around. I have a apple tree in my front yard that the birds love to sing from and the neighbors love to taste my apples.

Sunflower2423 on February 02, 2013:

Loved your lens. I enjoyed looking at the pictures that were moving. They were beautiful. :)

Lorelei Cohen from Canada on February 02, 2013:

I love the lake pictured just above the comment section, and yep, I'm a tree hugger too.

anonymous on September 18, 2012:

I always explained the importance of trees to people in an allegoric way. I tell them the story of a man marooned on a planet with very little oxygen which is made by the only three on the planet. The tree had thorns and every day the man had to pass by the tree which was rather long as it spreads over a wide area. He has to make the trip to its roots to get his sustenance. One hot day, he got a lot of cuts from the thorns and out of hanger hacked the tree to death.

Usually at this point most people will say what a fool! and I will say "Well, that is you".

Brandi from Maryland on September 11, 2012:

I LOVE the picture of the owl! Amazing! :)

The Falcon Press from Los Angeles, California on August 05, 2012:

Such a beautiful lens. Thumbs up. I love trees, too, and especially your owl photo. Wow.

lclchors on July 08, 2012:

great art work fun lens

John Dyhouse from UK on June 19, 2012:

I am also a tree lover. I have them around my garden, I love to walk in woods, I photograph them and paint them (on paper...) long may they reign. Not only are they useful and necessary for the environment but make the worl a better place, for me anyway.

LisaDH on April 23, 2012:

I hope some day that the entire world will be planting more trees than we're chopping down.

Kay on April 01, 2012:

Been all up and down the Northern California coast many a time hiking through redwoods. You cannot even begin to describe the beauty. You just have to go!

RinchenChodron on February 19, 2012:

Yes, I love trees - am a tree hugger from way back.

Nancy Carol Brown Hardin from Las Vegas, NV on February 18, 2012:

I love trees too. Without them we would not long exist in this world. Blessed by a SquidAngel, liked and pinned.

Linda Hahn (author) from California on February 17, 2012:

Gloria Freeman from Alabama USA on February 17, 2012:

Hi I am a tree lover,I planted 10 trees in my yard.I love the shade they give my yard.Lot of critters live in my trees.

anonymous on February 17, 2012:


I PINNED this lens to one of my Pinterest boards and it's being RE-PINNED like crazy!!!


CruiseReady from East Central Florida on February 16, 2012:

The trees in our yard are full of little living things, too... lots of squirrels!

I am a tree lover....

grannysage on February 12, 2012:

Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,

We fell them down and turn them into paper,

That we may record our emptiness.

~Kahlil Gibran

The tree spirits say thank you.

davenjilli lm on February 06, 2012:

Love the owl picture! I once saw an owl sitting on the road around where I live. It was night and kind of startled me.

julieannbrady on February 02, 2012:

I am inspired by trees ... love the face in the tree in your introduction.

Rose Jones on January 31, 2012:

I so love trees - and my kids love to climb them.

BusyMOM LM on January 28, 2012:

Love it! And have been to Muir Woods many times. There's an awesome quietness there - attributed to the grand trees, no doubt. Thanks for a thoughtful lens.

fenz28 lm on January 23, 2012:

In my country, they had been cutting trees for road widening purposes. So beautiful to be cut off :(

Your images here are great. I'm definitely a treelover :-)

BusyQueen on September 28, 2011:

Great lens. Very Informative! Thumbs up.

turtleface on August 23, 2011:

I love this page. Life and the important things that it brings to us is lacking so heavily from the forefront of people's minds

Elsie Hagley from New Zealand on July 04, 2011:

Very nice lens, I love trees, but that is some photo you have of a redwood tree, we have redwoods on our farm, but nothing like that size. Thanks for sharing.

Chris-H LM on June 14, 2011:

I remember when folks were trying to save the redwoods from the logging companies. Nice lens.

grafixforacause on June 07, 2011:

nice lens!

ellagis on June 06, 2011:

I'm impressed by the photos :)

Morticella LM on June 03, 2011:

OK now this lens is listed in Squidojo please report any problem

Amy Fricano from WNY on May 28, 2011:

Anually on ARbor Day! Yes, trees please. Neat lens.

gravityx9 on May 23, 2011:

"nature's condos for the little guys" - that first line really caught my attention! even though I live in the desert, I always enjoy photographing trees when we head out of town to 'greener pastures'

ChrisDay LM on May 20, 2011:

Thanks for lensrolling my 'In Praise of Trees' lens to this great lens.

gottaloveit2 on May 19, 2011:

I have two 157 year old oak trees on my property. They are truly majestic. I love just gazing at them. Nice lens.

Norbert Isles from Philippines on May 17, 2011:

Love the face-in-trees-illusion and the whole lens. Trees are lovely to behold (I love seeing them like Linda M Hahn) and being with and beneath them; and I am happy to know you're an advocate for saving rainforests.

Bill Armstrong from Valencia, California on May 17, 2011:

Love the Owl :-)

DaveHiggsVis on May 17, 2011:

I positively LOVE that first picture! Great lens!

Great lens, excellent topic - well done

Linda Hahn (author) from California on May 15, 2011:

@Kailua-KonaGirl: Thank you for the suggestion. I agree and will be adding to this lens. I like to leave something of myself in the lens, but here I'm not feeling it so much.

GramaBarb from Vancouver on May 15, 2011:

I have a broad-leaf maple condo outside my window with a crow family in it every year. Great lens!

when a tree

I'm one of nature lovers.. all kind of life.. I always do love :) Thank you so much for creating this miracle lens. So proud to visit and happy to be here. 5 stars for you. Have a wonderful time.. dearest linhah :)

Tamara14 on May 14, 2011:

I love trees and I'm happy to live in a city but have trees in front of my windows. Trees are the easiest way of reminding ourselves of the beauty of the nature we're just a small part of. Not to mention they are the lungs of the world... Very nice lens :)

Liz Mackay from United Kingdom on May 13, 2011:

I love the owl.

KonaGirl from New York on May 12, 2011:

Beautiful photos, but it would be lovely to have you write something about your love for trees or about Stinson Beach. If you live near there, take some shots, include them and write about them. Just a suggestion.

MargoPArrowsmith on May 11, 2011:

I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree!

chrispell017 on May 10, 2011:

wow, really cool lens!

Linda Hahn (author) from California on May 10, 2011:

@anonymous: Do I know you? Was it my Facebook page?

Nancy Tate Hellams from Pendleton, SC on May 10, 2011:

I love your photo of the Owl. Wonderful

ChrisDay LM on May 09, 2011:

Lovely! - lensrolled to 'In Praise of Trees' and my Trees in Winter' lenses.

sugunalinus on May 09, 2011:

Marvellous effort. Here some NGO had taken some effort to plant a million tree in 1 year. A 10% success of which can be a brilliant effort.

anonymous on May 09, 2011:

I love your Squidoo Lens Opening Photo, I have seen on someone's Facebook Page so I had to Read All about this Lens!!

djroll on May 08, 2011:

Nice lens. I'm working on a lens about a forest across the street from me. It's a small forest with 100 foot trees. I see for myself everyday how important trees are to our wildlife. There are plans for its destruction. Love your owl picture.

Renaissance Woman from Colorado on May 08, 2011:

Trees are very important to me. Love that intro illustration. Very cool!

anonymous on May 05, 2011:

Love trees and have many of them around my home. This lens is awesome!

What a beautiful lens about trees, I really love that first picture! I agree with you, trees are precious and I too love to stop and just admire them sometimes. Great lens! :)

Joyce T. Mann from Bucks County, Pennsylvania USA on April 25, 2011:

Thank you. A marvelous lens. I love the fact that my home is surrounded by beautiful trees.

I love trees.

Trees could save the earth

I love trees. Beautiful lens.

EmaAzevedo on April 11, 2011:

I love trees! For me they are the most amazing creatures. I like your lenses very much!

anonymous on April 05, 2011:

I love your intro picture! This reminds me of someone's lens that encourages to really hug a tree to feel its life force. I grew up in the north woods of Minnesota and miss the trees for sure and have planted many over the years. All must be happy condos for friends to live in.

C A Chancellor from US/TN on April 03, 2011:

I adore trees. It worries me that we keep knocking them down to build more stores that no one needs. :-(

LouisaDembul on April 03, 2011:

Trees are important!

Linda Hahn (author) from California on April 01, 2011:

@sponias lm: Yes. We must fight for trees. It's impossible to have too many trees.

Linda Hahn (author) from California on April 01, 2011:

@pheonix76: Me too. Trees make me happy.

Linda Hahn (author) from California on April 01, 2011:

@Greenwickpress: Divine absolutely applies to trees. I'm drawn to them as well.

sponias lm on March 31, 2011:

Trees represent life. We must fight for their existence.

pheonix76 from WNY on March 29, 2011:

I have lots of love for trees!

Greenwickpress on March 25, 2011:

Trees are the most divine thing that I know of, and we can see and touch and smell them. I love to sit with my favorite tree as well, enjoying a quiet lunch or drawing.
