We recently paid our respects to the Comfort Maple; a 500-year-old sugar maple tree in the Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada. It is believed to be the oldest sugar maple in the country.
When the tree started its life, the Indigenous People were the only people here. They had their own culture and religion and traditions worthy of respect and emulation.
If I could only interview this tree; it would be an interview of a lifetime! What a book and what a movie that would be!
I bet this precious tree gave some lovely sweet maple syrup in its lifetime.
Preservation and conservation are essential.
