The Tree of the Month for April:

 "In a few favored spots the broad leafed maple grows to a height of a hundred feet in forests by itself, sending out large limbs in magnificent interlacing arches covered with mosses and ferns, thus forming lofty sky-gardens, and rendering the underwoods delightfully cool. No finer forest ceiling is to be found than these maple arches, while the floor, ornamented with fall ferns and rubus vines, and cast into hillocks by the bulging moss covered roots of the trees, matches it well."

(John Muir)
