Is It A Sin To Cut Down A Tree? Just My Own Personal Thoughts Here

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I believe it is a sin to cut down a tree. Each trees is a universe to numerous lifeforms offering housing and protection to all it's inhabitants. I believe trees have a spirit and they speak to us in soft whispers through the rustling of their leaves. They are beautiful, magical, mystical, majestic, mysterious as they sway in unison reaching to the heavens when there's scarcely a breeze. So sad,so sad just like everything that is good and wondrous in this world trees are victims of man's wanton destruction. If anything is to survive we must take heed to the Native American Prophecy: Only when the last tree has been cut down and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money. Yes, I believe it is a sin to cut down a tree.

Shalom,
