QUODITCH MOOR NATURE RESERVE
dwellers in a wood almost every species of tree has its voice
as well as its feature. At the passing of the breeze the fir-trees
sob and moan no less distinctly than they rock; the holly whistles
as it battles with itself; the ash hisses amid its quiverings;
the beech rustles while its flat boughs rise and fall. And winter,
which modifies the note of such trees as shed their leaves,
does not destroy its individuality.
the Greenwood Tree" - Thomas Hardy - published June 1872
