Wood is a noble material. Tree rings speak of life hidden within the body of trees. While alive, a tree turns the carbon from air, the water and minerals from soil, and the sun from the stars into its growing body. Feeling reverent is normal in the presence of living beings that will most likely outlive us. The oldest living trees are thought to be between 7-10,000 years old, predating modern empires by so much that - in human terms - they could be considered immortal. Wood is the ghostly remains of a living tree - that continues to change in sometimes haunted and enchanting ways depending on the way it is cared for. Among many fates - once felled, broken, overrun, struck by lightening, wind, fire, or simply shaded out by a surrounding stand of other trees - wood becomes the home for all kinds of ambitious creatures. Although it might not make a sound, a fallen tree usually takes others along with it, creating an opening in the canopy and a chance to compete for sun and a newly fertile soil.
