Bravo to Jared Farmer, Walter H. Annenberg Professor of History at University of Pennsylvania, for his insightful and passionate call for “perdurance” in his October 20 New York Times opinion essay.
Mr. Farmer writes, “Perdurance is resilience over time. Humans can recultivate this attribute by caring for old trees and the old-to-be.” We couldn’t agree more.
Mr. Farmer kindly references TREE Foundation/Mission Green founder and Executive Director Meg Lowman in his poignant plea to protect the Earth’s older and ancient — and truly essential! — beloved trees.
We encourage everyone to read, share, and take action!
