Songs of the Forest

Songs of the Forest

Anyone who spends a lot of time working with trees and forests knows that there’s a special sound, or lack thereof, in the middle of a forest. In music and literature, forests have been seen as anything from frightening to romantic, depending on the story. This month, we thought it would be fun to help you listen to the forest (in a way) at home…by sharing our favorite songs about them with you.

The Cure – A Forest

It’s a song about being lost in the forest, and the inevitable pull it can have on you. Our favorite lyrics in the song are “suddenly I stop/but I know it’s too late/I’m lost in a forest/all alone.” While we hope you never get lost in a forest, at least not all alone, we do think this song does justice to the mysteriously appealing aesthetic they have.

Monty Python – Lumberjack Song

A possible candidate for the theme song of the forestry industry (if you have a bit of a sense of humor about it) is Monty Python’s tune about the joys of being a lumberjack. Those joys, according to the song, include “leaping from tree to tree”, “pressing wild flowers” and “cutting down trees while wearing high heels.” Yeah, we did mention that this is a song that requires some self-irony…

Van Morrison – Redwood Tree

This one’s for the lovers of redwood trees and anyone who has fond childhood memories of sitting underneath one. Or, as Van Morrison puts it, “oh Redwood tree/please let us under/when we were young we used to go/under the Redwood tree”. So go take a walk down memory lane with Van Morrison…

Well, that’s that for our somewhat more lighthearted monthly update. Remember, though, that we are both forest lovers as well as one of the nation’s leading providers of used forestry equipment at competitive prices, so if you’re looking for anything from wood chippers to log trucks for sale, don’t hesitate to contact us!
