Daiki: Ancient Japanese wisely recognized that some trees are endowed with spiritual energy.
Chariya: Many traditional cultures claim this. Hence the edicts that some trees should never be cut.
An-Yi: Nowadays, it seems that if the price is right almost anything will be cut.
Bhäraté: Yeah . . . we've lost too much of the sacred.
