Evergreen Trees

Evergreens are trees that retain their leaves throughout the year, giving them the appearance of being “forever green.”

They also happen to represent some of the most ancient tree spirits on earth, such as kauri and monkey puzzle that lived among the dinosaurs during the Jurassic Period (200–145 million years ago).  Evergreens are often referred to as “softwoods” yet some of the hardest woods on earth come from evergreen trees.

“All theory, dear friend, is gray, but the golden tree of life springs ever green.”  – Johanne Wolfgang von Goethe
