You have a point of view, a perspective about life that is your own. It’s how you perceive your world.

Your point of view is also probably human-centric. Unwittingly, people think of most things from the mindset of being a person. It’s natural.

But, when you are with a tree, try coming from that tree’s point of view. It has a perspective of its own, unique to its life. How? Because trees have consciousness, they are part of Nature's intelligence.

Think about what its life is like: rooted in one place, making its own food, going through the seasonal cycles, experiencing extremes, and living with other organisms.

Try this exercise from our book Tree Whispering: Trust the Path to put yourself in the tree's place and come from its point of view.

That’s coming from the tree’s point of view and being tree-centric.

Tree Protectors can put themselves in a tree’s roots so that they understand what its life is like... and then if they need do, they can change behaviors.
