When you hear the word community, what comes to mind first? Is it the community in which you live or work, or the ecological community that surrounds you? Perhaps it is the sense of community that allows one to feel like they are a part of something, whether big or small. Community encompasses structure, people and the environment. Our forests are not just a part of our community, they also are one in themselves. Forests are not disconnected from people and the realization of this is essential in sustainability.

Every planter does this. You step forward with your right leg- your right hip glides easily forward, and as you bend to plant the tree, your right leg muscles tense up to bear the load of your leaning torso. Meanwhile, your left leg, somewhat straighter behind you, relaxes just slightly, and your left back muscles do the work to maintain the balance of your hips as you overload your right leg and left back muscles.
