Our trees are your trees if you're a Mainer.  We lease our bush from the Bureau of Parks and Lands, which manages the 200 acres for multiple use.  We treat our trees with the respect they command, and they've been good to us in return.  Most of the time, though, we just let them be, and they seem to like it, sharing well with the moose, snowshoe hares, deer, and bears who walk among them.
