Lesson From The Forest #2: PUT DOWN ROOTS. And Hold On Tight.

March 14, 2021

In 1985, The New Yorker published a piece on Dr. Peter and Bonnie Ahrens, the founders of the Mountaintop Arboretum. When asked about the local soil, Ahrens said it was no more than two feet deep over the bedrock. “So the trees up here put their roots out sidewise, and they interlock with other tree’s roots, forming something like an interwoven mat. That’s what keeps them from blowing over when the wind is strong.” Humans have been using trees for millennia without fully understanding them. But when the environment gets rocky and communities lose ground, we’d be wise to learn from the forest and hold on tight to each other. #LessonsFromTheForest #WellnessRx -A.D. Lubow. A. D.
