Sugar Pine Lumber

Famous quotes containing the words sugar, pine and/or lumber:

    The sugar maple is remarkable for its clean ankle. The groves of these trees looked like vast forest sheds, their branches stopping short at a uniform height, four or five feet from the ground, like eaves, as if they had been trimmed by art, so that you could look under and through the whole grove with its leafy canopy, as under a tent whose curtain is raised.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Think how stood the white pine tree on the shore of the Chesuncook, its branches soughing with the four winds, and every individual needle trembling in the sunlight,—think how it stands with it now,—sold, perchance, to the New England Friction-Match Company!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Then cut down the trees when lumber grown,
    And there’s your pristine earth all freed
    From lovely blooming but wasteful weed
    And ready again for the grass to own.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
