THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
Background of the Study
“Time-honored, beautiful, solemn and wise.
Noble, sacred and ancient
Trees reach the highest heavens and penetrate the deepest secrets of the earth. Trees are the largest living beings on this planet.
Trees are in communion with the spiritual and the material. Trees guard the forests and the sanctified places that must not be spoiled. Trees watch over us and provide us with what we need to live on this planet. Trees provide a focal point for meditation, enlightenment, guidance and inspiration. Trees have a soul and a spirit.”
(Tree Magick by Lavenderwater)
God created the world and everything in it (Genesis 1). Thus, trees were created by God, therefore, existed many years ago. Some bore fruits with seeds in it and each seed grow its own kind of plant. These God’s creation was beautiful and wonderful. In ancient times, people regarded trees as special beings because of their sizes and majesty. They are the tallest living species, as well as, grow deep into the earth. Further, they are sad when withered, and happy when they are robust, healthy and in bloom. Trees are everywhere. They are found in our backyards, in the neighborhoods, parks, and mountains. Furthermore, vast trees are found in the forests to provide a natural habitat for other small creatures. Nevertheless, Morrison (2008) noted that “a single rain-forest tree can provide a home for 2000 different species of animal … .” So, trees attract wildlife, by supporting habitat to create a biodiversity (http://www.arborilogical.com...). Trees are powerful and important tools for our existence. They are very useful to man. They produced oxygen. They filtered and purified the air, thus, provided us clean air to breathe. They hold water underneath the ground for humans and animals to drink. Likewise, they give us rain.
