Nothing quite so majestic as a thousand-year-old tree. Humans have such short life spans, in the scheme of things, yet we are causing what may well be irreparable damage to our planet at an astonishing rate, and have been, (at least) since the industrial revolution. Despite it all, I believe the earth will endure, as it has through multiple mass-extinctions, but I'm not so sure humanity will, and thousands of other fauna and flora species are being wiped out regularly with our pollution, deforestation, and general disregard for our environment. We've only got one planet, and it's long past time to start treating it with the love and respect it deserves. . . . . .With [our] higher consciousness comes higher responsibility. . . . #earthday #earthday2018 🌏🌳🌲♻ . . #significanceisamatterofperspective #oneworld #groveofthepatriarchs #oldgrowthforest #oldgrowth #mtrainernationalpark #mountrainiernationalpark #washington #washingtonstate #pacificnorthwest

Happy Earth Day! 🌎
Earth Day 🌏 is Every Day 🌞😄 but it’s definitely fun and meaningful to have an extraordinarily special time to celebrate Nature! We honored two amazing old-growth forests this weekend, the pics here are from #WeymouthWoods in #SouthernPines area of #NorthCarolina . It is the first NC forest dedicated into the #oldgrowthforest Network!! 👏🏻 The #oldest #longleafpine #tree is here in this #magicalplace . It was wonderful to share a stellar #Partyforthepine with so many great folks!! @billy_hartness @ivyrutledge @anthonyapplewhite @carlybera @sandhillsarealandtrust. Thanks to all those that are working hard to #preserveforests in NC, and everywhere- this Earth Day and every day. ~#CanYouGuess where the other forest that was dedicated into the Old Growth Forest Network is located?? 🤔 #earthdayiseveryday #hugatree #pinetrees #forestconservation #naturelovers #oldtree
Thieves Day 3 of Trees for Earth Day & Arbor Day. I got home from yesterday's show exhausted. It was a great show - I was so busy that I forgot to take pictures of my tables! My booth looked good, however. It was funny that I only sold postcards - no ephemera or photos. I never know what will sell! I have a photo of a lot cabin sitting amongst giant trees that I wanted to put up, but it is so shiny that I couldn't take a picture of it. I tried in 4 different rooms with different lighting situations. I've never had this happen. Sorry @log_cabin_book ! These are Giant Cedars of the Inland Empire. It's somewhere in California. Look how small the woman is to the trees. Obviously this was old growth forest. We need to protect and save old growth forests, in California and everywhere else. There are people in office and working for the government that want to allow logging in places like this. We need to stop this from happening. I hope you've enjoyed Trees. Please join me again for a new theme. And watch for May when I'm going to mix things up a bit. #trees #giantcedars #inlandempire #southerncalifornia #cedar #cedartrees #earthday #arborday #oldgrowthforest #savethetrees #womaninforest #antiquepostcards #antiquepaper #oldpostcards #timetravelerpostcards #time_traveler_postcards #igpostcards #timetraveler_postcards #postcardcollecting #savetheearth

On #earthday2018 I want to share a pic of a Northern Spotted Owl, a threatened species here in the Northwest due to habitat loss from logging and competition from Barred Owls.

✨Gratitude for this beautiful day on Earth🌲 May we be conscious May we share loving kindness to all beings on earth For the past couple of weeks, @circlesofspace & I have been exploring the forest around Vancouver Island and Vancouver. I'm stunned by the immense beauty in the old growth forest, at the same time disheartened by how much logging is going on. Instead of cutting down these spirited beings, there must be another way. Must be! . @circlesofspace said on our trip that collectively our priority is not the survival of the planet. Perhaps for myself, the priority can be shifted. On this earth day, I would like to set an intention to live everyday more consciously, in what I eat, what I wear and what businesses/services I support. . Gratitude to @ancientforestalliance for the amazing work you've done 💕🙏 . . . . . . . #happyearthday #earthday2018 #motherearth #zerowaste #zerowastelifestyle #spreadwellnessness #conciousliving #mindfulness #shinrinyoku #森林 #森林浴 #oldgrowthforest #sustainableliving #forestlove #naturewalk #wellbeing #onewithnature #naturetherapy #treehugger #collectiveconsciousness #natureconnection #natureheals #justbreathe #awareness #oneness #thankyounature #embracenature #naturesbeauty #touchthelight

Vous les sentez les bonnes ondes du dimanche ? C'est l'heure d'embarquer pour une autre découverte sylvestre 🌲🌳, direction le nord-ouest des Etats-Unis cette fois, une petite île nommée Orcas. Le Moran State Park abrite des conifères à croissance lente énormes, et quand ils tombent au-dessus d'une cascade, ça donne ça ⬆️ Je ne cracherai pas sur un petit bain sous le pin Douglas déchu, même si l'eau doit être glaciale ❄️😂 Allez, taguez un pote qui n'a pas froid pour faire ce plongeon avec vous un jour peut-être ? --- Off we go to another foresty Sunday adventure, this time to the US on the coast off Washington State, on the Orcas island to be precise. In Moran State Park, you'll find some old growth trees, like this fallen Douglas fir ⬆️. I wouldn't mind jumping into that water, except it's probably darn cold ❄️😂 Tag a brave friend who would jump with you! . . . #sundaybeauty #nature #culture #naturelovers #beautyeverywhere #wanderlust #instagood #instatravel #theoutbound #lifeofadventure #bestvacations #worldtravelbook #liveauthentic #travelandlife #darlingescapes #beautifulfestinations #bestplaces #shisnotlost #moran #orcas #washingtonstate #moranstatepark #douglasfir #oldgrowthforest #forest #forestlovers #tree #treelovers #arbre #foret

What we call education and culture is for the most part nothing but the substitution of reading for experience, of literature for life, of the obsolete fictitious for the contemporary real. - George Bernard Shaw . . #vegetation #nature #tree #forest #ecosystem #woodland #naturereserve #oldgrowthforest #wilderness #path

Today's adventure was exploring the beautiful #rainforesttrail in #tofino So beautiful and SO many #oldgrowthforest trees 🌲 #pacificnorthwest #explorebc #acolorstoryseasons #beautifulbc
If there has ever been a wet, soft, mossy rock that I have wanted to rub my face against... this would one would certainly be a strong contender. The Mossy Bluff ecosystem in the #discoveryislands boasts some of the largest and most impressive mosses and lichens on the planet. #britishcolumbia #explorecanada #hellobc #pacificnorthwest #raincoast #explorebc #pnw #oldgrowthforest #coastalforest #gulfislands #vancouver #greatnorthcollective #mossyforest #lichen #greatbearrainforest #salishsea
Recently I met Doug. A few years ago he lost all his friends and now he lives all alone in the middle of a clear cut. That’s why people call him Big Lonely Doug. He is 70m tall and 4m wide -that’s pretty huge. Even Doug didn’t know this until recently, but he is the second largest Douglas Fir in the world. Doug is over 1000 years old so he’s seen a lot in his lifetime. I feel honoured to have met him while he still stands tall and proud. Photo 📍traditional territory of the Pacheedaht First Nation
Earlier this week I did some work and surveying in a stunning old growth woods in west central Ohio. The herb layer was quite diverse and had a remarkable, albeit behind spring ephemeral display. My favorite was the endless colonies of ramps (Allium tricoccum) throughout the forest. Such a lushness I can never get enough off. Take note of the 4'+ dbh tuliptree in the background. This site was full of enormous tuliptree, red oak, sugar maple, green ash, beech and chinkapin oak. #Nature #NatureGram #NatureLovers #NaturePhotography #IGNature #InstaNature #InstaBotany #Botany #Wildflower #Tree #Dendrology #OldGrowth #OldGrowthForest #Ramps #Leek #Allium #Lush #Ecology #Spring #Ohio #OhioNature #OhioSpring #OhioFlora #ALGibson #TheBuckeyeBotanist
Physical job with #oceanview Very proud of myself to be able to crawl up and down the #monkeybar setup. Cedar shingle siding. #Beautifulstuff but for not much longer I’m afraid. #oldgrowthforest have been decimated #colonialstyle The new trees will never grow this way again. Tight grain.

Another treasure from the "camp" And this one is for sale too! An absolutely beautiful North Carolina pine knot. This needs to go to a woodcarver asap. Please tag anybody you might know. I just never got into wood carving or I'd do it myself, but this could be something extremely unique and beautiful. It would even make a beautiful rustic decor piece as is! Dm me if interested, $15 shipped anywhere in the US, and please tag any woodworkers or carvers who may be interested. Hell, it could even be a knife handle if it was for display or if you can carve wood lol. @creativehiveco #makersbiz #woodcarving #woodworking #wood #gotwood #art #naturalart #pineknot #northcarolina #oldgrowthforest #ncpines

Working with Yr today. I’m exploring ideas of releasing and integrating. Adopting a yin orientation to the process of transformation. Rather than excising pieces that are no longer serving me, I am allowing them to decay and compost so they can integrate and feed what’s to come. I’m releasing fear, I’m releasing the belief that I don’t have anything to add to the conversation, & that my gifts aren’t good enough; the fear of being seen. This will make such fertile compost. 🌿 . 🌲The old growth forests are teaching me how to integrate and that we are our own compost. Nourishing the whole. ♻️ . . #holistichealing #holism #oldgrowthforest #compost #shadowintegration #yinaf #divinefeminine

The Ancient Forest Alliance is a grassrootsenvironmental organization in British Columbia, Canada. It was founded in January, 2010, and is dedicated to protecting British Columbia's old growth forests in areas where they are scarce, and ensuring sustainable forestry jobs in that province. Follow them ! This forest would have been cut down. #saveourforests #oldgrowthforest #avatargrove #logging #nature #rainforest #explorebc #ancientforestalliance #treehugger
Yo the dream is real, it has manifested, my family (both parents, brother, husband and me) have purchased 60 acres of forested land in chesterfield, ma. It def takes a village - the idea that I once held about off grid living as a means of independence is only a half truth.. I needed (would say we all need) others to help accomplish realities and goals. Shared resources and support are NECESSARY for sustainability, stability, progress. Happiness only real when shared ❤️🙏. NOW the big question is how do we get on this land? Tiny house ideas are slowly blooming into reality.. but if I have learned anything it is that things take time. . . . #oldgrowth #oldgrowthforest #pines #woods #offgridliving #offgrid #hike #community #family
As our time in the USA is quickly coming to a close we have been looking back at old photos with fondness and nostalgia. - Here, we parked along the Avenue of the Giants next to an impressively carved tree stump that once was a massive Pacific Coast Redwood tree. - The lush green forests of Northern California were magical with their mindblowingly enormous trees. Now we camp among sprawling Oaks covered in ferns and Cypress trees in the Louisiana Bayou country. - - - - - - - #vanlifeculture #vandweller #vanlife #projectvanlife #nomads #avenueofthegiants #homeiswhereyouparkit #redwoods #californiaadventure #oldgrowthforest #throwback #vanlifemagazine #roadtrip #travel
