Lauren Sperber

on trees, translated from the Swedish

apple box tree

“Trees raise the sky by being so big and yet having so much further to go. Trees create room.”—Sven Lindqvist, Exterminate all the Brutes

I read this book a few years ago and noted in the back that I wanted to write down this quote, but I doubt I ever did. The book’s really about neocolonialism, but I thought this was a nice tree-appreciative bit.
