After just obtaining mulch from our forest of cork oaks in our zone 4 for our emerging food forest i became even more appreciative of trees and their multitude of uses. here is a short article i wrote on the topic.
https://treeyopermacultureedu.wordpress.com/chapter-6-trees/trees-and-their-uses/

excerpt:
Trees are such sacred creatures on planet earth that is tough to quantify all that they do. In the Introduction to Permaculture book, Mollison presented the three ethics but quietly tied in the life ethic as well. It is vastly important to remember this as we work within systems that are beyond this material (matter), dualistic world rather a universe that is interlaced with patterns and mandalas of space and time of extreme complexity. Therefore, trees themselves will always be fantastic representatives of the life ethic, they are above alive, and co-creators in nature.
 
I'm so happy! And I wish to make this tiny ad happy too:
