If A Tree Falls in the Forest & doesn’t end up on an accountants balance sheet as ‘timber’ was its life worth anything?


Think about it.

That is how we account for nature.

There is nowhere on our current balance sheets to reflect the value of a living tree.

But would giving a living tree a value make it any more precious?

Or would we just fight over who owns it?

And then boast about how many trees we own?

Would we covet them to death?

Would they go in and out of fashion?

I don’t know.

But what I do know is that I dream about a future where the trees can just be trees

and where people like me can breathe
