Tree planting with TreePeople

I planted trees today with Tree People. It was wonderful. We were up in the Angels National Forest and the drive there and back was spectacular. I met lots of great people and had fun. The tree planting part was quite different than what I did in Northern Ontario. Instead of putting as many trees in as possible, we nutured each one, and watered it, and even welcomed each one into the forest by naming it and chanting in a circle " Trees need people, people need trees, welcome ....". It was quite interesting to hear this chant go on around the forest as the trees got planted.

Quite the green St. Patricks Day. Note my touch of green, my Kiva bracelet. I don't need to wear much green to show I've got Irish blood.
