Trees are the world’s largest and oldest living things. Slovenia has several trees of venerable ages and sizes. Throughout the centuries they must have witnessed many events in the world’s history, things taking shape, evolving and fading into time. All of these things can be brough back to life. If we listen closely, they will speak to us. We can hear them talk to each other, for example, on Midsummer Eve, which is full of magical secrets. Since time immemorial, fairy tales have instructed humanity, offering a mirror reflection of society and having the power to heal. The trees possess similar powers through their stories.
Anton Tone Lesnik graduated in forestry from the Biotechnical Faculty in 1976. In 2001, he completed his post-graduate specialisation in environmental care. He worked for the Forest Management Ljubljana and the Slovenia Forest Service as head of the Ljubljana Regional Unit and later as head of the Department of Public Relations and Education of Forest Owners. In 2008, he was one of the co-founders of the Pro Silva section of the Slovenian Association of Forestry Societies. He is the current vice president of the Association Pro Silva Slovenija. He is also a scout and moderator, active in the field of forest pedagogy. He has recently taken an interest in storytelling, and occasionally appears as a raconteur.
