Two Trees
Two Trees Painting

Deep in the National Forest, on a steep embankment along side the Stanislaus river stand two trees.


Each tree originated from separate seeds as well as from a completely different species... One being an Oak Tree, husky and thick; the other an Incense Cedar, tall and lean.


Side by side over the years they grew from saplings to mighty trees, perfect specimens in their right.


Nourished from the same soil, watered by the same rains, sharing the same Sunshine, Wintering the bitterest storms, surviving drought and fire.. the trees grew side by side...but apart.  Until time and erosion dominated the landscape, the tall Cedar began to slowly fall uphill toward the Oak, while the weight of the Oak began to pull it downward to where it could no longer stand on its own.


Eventually the two great trees came together, if it were one great wind, or a gentle push, matters little.  The Cedar had come to rest cradled in the split of the Oaks waiting branches. The two supported each other.  Through the years they continued to grow stronger together, leaning thru more storms, supported thru winds.    


Neither lost their identity, they remained true to their species, and their original roots remained in firm soil.


So simple.. to understand that nothing stands alone for long, but with mutual effort .. Life continues harmoniously..

Action for Nature book

Action For Nature, Inc. is an international non-profit organization based in San Francisco, California, that encourages young people to take personal action to better their environments and to foster love and respect for nature.  


Learn to love and respect the natural world in which you live. Do not be afraid to take action to stop or hinder the degradation of your personal environment and the annihilation of many of the creatures - including human beings - found in it.


Personal action is a powerful weapon in the battle to keep our planet alive and well. When taken, it can slow down a river's pollution; help preserve the ancient growth of trees threatened by cutters; and increase the survival of songbirds.


Action for Nature's International Young Eco-Heroes Awards program recognizes and encourages children and teens who have completed a project to "foster respect and affection for nature through personal action."
