“Anyone who has a garden, park or orchard tree has an opportunity to ensure that it offers protection, brings beauty and bears fruit for future generations. In short, every one of us should aspire to be a forester.”
Gabriel Hemery, The New Sylva: A Discourse of Forest and Orchard Trees for the Twenty-First Century

“A verse from a short poem - 'Philosophy is Forestry's Child' - in my Foreword:
