Quotations About Trees

Top Ten Collection of Big Tree Pictures
If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down?  We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.  
~Jack Handey (Tree Quotes)
Of all the wonders of nature, a tree in summer is perhaps the most remarkable; with the possible exception of a moose singing "Embraceable You" in spats. 
~Woody Allen (Tree Quotes)
God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods.  But he cannot save them from fools. 
 ~John Muir (Tree Quotes)
For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver. 
 ~Martin Luther (Tree Quotes)
To the great tree-loving fraternity we belong.  We love trees with universal and unfeigned love, and all things that do grow under them or around them - the whole leaf and root tribe. 
~Henry Ward Beecher (Tree Quotes)
Happiness is sharing a bowl of cherries and a book of poetry with a shade tree.  He doesn't eat much and doesn't read much, but listens well and is a most gracious host.  
~Terri Guillemets (Tree Quotes)
I willingly confess to so great a partiality for trees as tempts me to respect a man in exact proportion to his respect for them.   
~James Russell Lowell (Tree Quotes)
The oaks and the pines, and their brethren of the wood, have seen so many suns rise and set, so many seasons come and go, and so many generations pass into silence, that we may well wonder what "the story of the trees" would be to us if they had tongues to tell it, or we ears fine enough to understand.  
~Maud van Buren, 1938 (Tree Quotes)
Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money.  
~Cree Indian Proverb (Tree Quotes)
Many people, other than the authors, contribute to the making of a book, from the first person who had the bright idea of alphabetic writing through the inventor of movable type to the lumberjacks who felled the trees that were pulped for its printing.  It is not customary to acknowledge the trees themselves, though their commitment is total.  
 ~Forsyth and Rada, Machine Learning (Tree Quotes)
