What we learn about trees in the Bible affirms scripture and enriches our understanding of God's purposes supremely fulfilled in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Britain's most famous forester, John Evelyn, arguably wrote the greatest treatise about our forests, Evelyn's Sylva. It was at the request of the new established Royal Society and was presented in 1662 and published in 1664. In it he brings together perfectly trees and our Christian faith as he points to the work of the Lord Jesus Christ:
In a word, and to speak a bold and noble truth, trees and woods
have twice saved the whole world; first by the ark, then by the cross;
making full amends for the evil fruit of the tree in paradise, by that
which was born on the tree in Golgotha. "
