After spending several years getting to know trees on and near her property in northwest New Mexico, Margaret began, timidly at first, sharing some of her experiences. People responded with interest. Several wanted to learn how to connect with trees. Cottonwoods, elms, junipers, Russian olives, maples, Austrian pines, and many other trees all want to be part of the rich, tender relationship that continues to grow.
If you’re curious about whether trees really can communicate with you, spend a little time near
one you like. Tell it how beautiful you think it is. Thank God for it. Then be still. Listen. See what happens next. You may be pleasantly surprised.
