Nobody knows one sapling could grow into a huge tree before it actually grows huge. When it was in medium size, they just saw it as an ordinary tree. The tree in town never stopped growing, only then people finally realized, that there was this huge tree standing there. They called it the king of trees, a miracle. It was people’s proud, until it became too huge. People started worried, and decided, to cut it down.

This is a book with trees as its protagonists, a book about human wrestling with nature, and a book reflecting on industrialization and urbanization.
