"The mountains are different every single day. Moment by moment, a tree grows or withers. The changes may be subtle, but if you miss those subtle signs, you can’t grow healthy trees and you can’t maintain the woodlands in optimum condition.
“You can’t go around planting trees wherever you feel like it and then just forget about them,” said Iwao. “You’ve got to think in terms of the cycle. Not doing any maintenance, just letting things go—that’s not ‘nature.’ You’ve got to help the cycle along, keep the mountain in shape, and that’s how you preserve nature.”
