Arbor Day Foundation Quotes...and Ultrarunning

Got a come-on to join the Arbor Day Foundation, I assume from having attended an American Chestnut symposium recently.

They are a worthwhile organization but my charitable and non-profit support budget is too limited to join.  Nevertheless, I truly loved the quotes that appeared in the greeting cards they included in the membership solicitation:

In wilderness is the preservation of the world. -- Henry David Thoreau

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks. -- John Muir

He who plants a tree plants a hope. -- Lucy Larcom

The link to Ultrarunning?  If you don't see it, you are brain-dead.
