I hope you find meaning in these messages from the trees and that they inspire you to live your life with love, compassion, understanding, forgiveness, gratitude and in reciprocity with all living beings on this beautiful planet, Mother Earth.

After reading my book or listening to me, many people express that it must be neat to be able to hear the voices of the trees. And it is! I tell them I've always had the ability to hear them (and so do you) but it was only when I stopped talking and started to listen that I was actually able to hear.
I believe that every being will listen to us - and if we aren't hearing anything back, it's because we haven't stopped talking - literally or within our minds. Our hearts and souls need to be open bur our voices (inner and outer) quieted.
I often bring an offering as a show of respect and leave another gift of gratitude for the shared experience.
These books are journeys into the woods - offering words of wisdom from the trees themselves. This unique perspective allows you to remember what it was like when you could hear the voices of nature (before the adults in your life told you it was all nonsense). These books may be just what you need to give you the courage to step back into your child-like nature and encourage you to have your own conversations - whether in the woods with trees, or with any form of nature. All you have to do is...
Be still. Listen. Know.
Praise for If These Trees Could Talk, Park 1
The photos are exquisite. The angle from which they are taken have a warm, human quality to them. They make me want to hug each and every tree."
Ellen Kort, first Poet Laureate of Wisconsin
"Kate tells the touching stories of trees near her home where she has often walked in quiet reverence for their presence and lets you know how an ordinary person can have an extraordinary connection with all of life. You will find your time in nature reaching a new level once you read this book."
Carol Bridges, author of Medicine Woman Inner Guidebook
"I look at trees in a totally new way now.
They all have personalities!"
I already know I want to buy 4 copies - one for myself (so I can underline passages that spoke to me), for my sons and for my sister (there are parts that really address things she is struggling with right now.) After a meeting last night, I was in a little bit of a funk, but as I was reading through your book, so many lines jumped out at me and helped me to get my perspective back again.
Message excerpts from the Trees of Sunset Park
"We can choose fear and fall, or we can choose faith and fly. The choice is yours. What will you do?” - from The Angel Tree (pictured on the left)
"Draw your roots deep within the Earth so that you can hold fast. Stand on your own two feet and guide and support those that fall away – giving them the guidance, strength and support that they need to go on – to push them back up onto the right path. They will know the path, after all we are One – we are all connected." -from Merci
“Don’t become entangled in having to be strong. Sometimes strength is found in asking for help, recognizing your vulnerabilities, recognizing your weaknesses, recognizing that you have no control over the situation. And in order to get past your vulnerabilities you need to find strength and sometimes that strength cannot come from within but needs to be gathered and harvested from those around you, who choose to support your life, and, who choose to support your dreams..." - from Harley
