Birch triptych

I like birch trees very much. They are tough, adaptable and sympathetic ....

As the hardiest deciduous tree of all, the birch is the "Tree of the North". It is the national tree of the Finns and plays the main role in numerous myths.
Due to the birch tar stored in the bark, even wet birch wood burns. In addition, all parts of the birch are usable: the birch sap in the spring is a healthy vitamin drink, the leaves give a tasty, slightly tart salad and the branches of the birch can be processed as brooms...

Thoughts on wilderness...

Wildernesses are not only critical for nature and wildlife, but also for people. There are many reasons why wildernesses are good for us.

First, wildernesses provide us with the opportunity to rest and relax. Nature has a calming effect on us and can help relieve stress. In the wilderness, we can disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and focus on what is important. The beauty and tranquility of the wilderness can help us relax and unwind.

Second, wildernesses can also help us improve our physical health. Many outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and rock climbing require physical exertion and help us stay fit. In the wilderness, there is also no polluted air like in the city, and we can breathe fresh air and recharge with natural resources like water and sunlight.

Third, wildernesses can help us deepen our understanding of nature. When we experience nature firsthand, we can develop a deeper understanding of our environment and learn how to protect it. We can also learn how to live in harmony with nature and live more sustainably.

Finally, wildernesses can give us a sense of freedom and independence. When we are in the wilderness, we are on our own and have to fend for ourselves. This can give us a sense of strength and self-confidence that we often miss in our everyday lives.

So overall, wildernesses are very important for us as humans. They offer us the opportunity to relax, improve our health, deepen our understanding of nature, and experience a sense of freedom and independence.

It is therefore important that we protect and preserve wildernesses so that future generations can also benefit from them.
