Tree Register

"He that planteth a tree is a servant of God, he provideth a kindness for many generations, and faces he hath not seen shall bless him."

And They Shall Speak The Words Of Poets

Eynsford Ford, Kent, England

Eynsford, a little village in Kent, celebrated the first Arbor Day in England at the commemoration of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. Some of the trees planted on the annual Arbor Day still remain; they were planted in such a way that the initial letter of the name of each tree would together, form words and sentences. There were five sets of these and from the railway station into the village on the left-hand side the following quotation from Robert Browning's  touchingly poignant poem, Rabbi Ben Ezra maybe spelled out:

H - hornbeam
