2011 - Year of the Tree

Joyce Kilmer. 1886–1918

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree. ~

Sweet smell and touch of earth

Smile and a long trek uphill

Young naturalist-artists with their mentor

Seedling is weaned from the nursery ...

and transplanted on fertile soil with love and care.

Composite painting: We love the Tree

Putting the final touch

Silence and creativity at work

Student volunteers plant narra,
national tree of the Philippines.

Dr Anselmo S Cabigan, biologist and ecologist,
leads tree planting at La Mesa watershed
Chin Chin Gutierrez, artist-environmentalist
sings at a forum on environment, SPUQC

Environmentalist and singer-composer Noel
