Yes, I know I am totally geeking out by quoting Treebeard from the Lord of the Rings but it is so darn good. Has there ever been a better character?

But how often in real life can words spoken by an Ent resonate? I’m gonna say not often…but this week, the Lumbery and our fantastic Tree sure come close.

Come check things out for yourselves. And don’t forget to spread the word. Hope to see you all soon.

Mike Friedland, The Lumbery

We are tree-herds, we old Ents. Few enough of us are left now. Sheep get like shepherds, and shepherds like sheep, it is said, but slowly, and neither have long in the world. It is quicker and closer with trees and Ents, and they walk down the ages together. For Ents are more like Elves; less interested in themselves than Men are, and better at getting inside other things. And yet again Ents are more like Men, more changeable than Elves are, and quicker at taking the colour of the outside, you might say. Or better than both: for they are steadier and keep their minds on things longer.
