From the time I was a child, I have stood in awe of trees--not just the huge, impressive ones but also the scraggly types and sprawling sorts and gangly saplings, trees that branch low and trees that tower high. I find trees beautiful, intricate, and reassuring. They are plants, to be sure, but sometimes they seem to have intelligence; clearly, they have strategies--embedded in their genes, if not the product of an intellect--to help them survive and prosper.
