Every forest

has a tree.

The One Tree.

Have you ever noticed in a forest, or even a small pocket of garden, there is always one tree that stands a bit taller. A bit longer. Than all the other trees. It’s the tree that seems to connect and define the whole ecosystem, attracting vines, moss and creepers — even treehouses, stabilising posts, and Christmas Lights. Their roots buckle roads and pavements, their leaves shelter winged life, and the small trees rush to reside within the anchor points. The One Tree transforms hot summer sun into breathable air, cool and soothing to skin. And when the wind sways all her branches, magic occurs, as the whole forest responds and reciprocates in unisonned reply.
