Trees (American band)
Trees was an American new wave one-man band, fronted by Dane Conover, from San Diego, California. Trees only released one album on MCA Records. Sleep Convention was produced by Earle Mankey called and released in 1982. It was a critical success but a commercial failure. The band also filmed five low budget music videos.
Because of its album's commercial failure, Conover ended Trees to move on to other projects such as 'PopGems' with his wife Marisa, and both are still active in writing and recording pop music, and collaborating with other musicians. America Records had temporary rights from MCA to re-release five songs from the album from 1982 to 1984.
As of June 2007, Conover and his wife Marisa created a profile on YouTube and uploaded three of the Trees music videos. Two of the three had never been aired before, which were "Delta Sleep", and "India". "Shock of the New", however, aired on MTV2 once. In November 2007, he uploaded the "Red Car" music video, and on September 18, 2008, he uploaded the "Come Back" music video.
Also Marisa Conover has mentioned that they are currently undergoing a MySpace page as of January 2008.
Trees (folk band)
Trees was an English folk rock band that existed between 1970 and 1973. Although the group met with little commercial success in their time, the reputation of the band has grown over the years. Like other folk contemporaries, Trees' music was influenced by Fairport Convention, but with a heavier and more psychedelic edge. The group's material was divided between adaptations of traditional songs and original compositions.
Trees produced two studio albums, both in 1970, The Garden of Jane Delawney and On The Shore. The latter featured cover artwork by the Hipgnosis studio.
The original band disbanded after recording the two albums. A second Trees incarnation formed and played until 1973; this group featured Celia Humphris, Barry Clarke, David Costa, Barry Lyons (ex- Mr Fox), Alun Eden (also ex-Mr Fox) and Chuck Fleming (ex- JSD Band). Recordings by this line-up can be found on bootleg releases.
Both studio albums have been released on CD. In addition, a deluxe two disc edition of On the Shore was released in 2007, containing previously unreleased material. A new edition of the debut album followed in 2008, also containing previously unreleased material as well as some new recordings.
Celia Humphris went on to become a voice artist and recently provided vocals for Dodson and Fogg, a folk-rock project released in 2012.
Trees is a science fiction comic book series by Warren Ellis and Jason Howard, published by American company Image Comics. The first issue was published May 28, 2014. The narrative begins ten years after the arrival of massive and silent alien presences who stand on the surface of the earth like the "Trees" of the title, not moving and seeming to take no account of human life and society.

The discussion of specific nut tree cultivars and of specific techniques to grow nut trees that might have been successful in one area and at a particular time is not a guarantee that similar results will occur elsewhere.
Littlepage: That the association request the Secretary of Agriculture to include in his estimates of appropriations for the next fiscal year a sum sufficient, in his judgment, to enable the department to carry on a continuous survey of nut culture, including the investigation and study of nut trees throughout the northern states, such nut trees including all the native varieties of nuts, hickories, walnuts, butternuts and any sub-divisions of those varieties, and that a committee of three be appointed to interview the secretary personally to have this amount included in the appropriation.
I have had my attention called to the fact that in the West the beech trees are heavily laden with nuts.
I know there are many beech trees around Stamford, but I have not been able to find any nuts.
I have a great many beech trees on my place from one year to more than one hundred years of age, and they came from natural seeding, but the seeds in this part of Connecticut are very small and shrivelled.
They are not valuable like the ones in western New York, for instance, and I do not remember even as a boy to have known of eastern beech trees with well-filled nuts.
I have been observing these beech trees, there has never grown upon them a single full, fertile beech nut.
Association can do a splendid work by the interesting of all land owners in the conservation of the native nut trees and the planting of grafted nut trees in gardens, orchards and yards, to take the place of many worthless shade trees.
In sections of the country the different kind of nut trees suitable could be selected and, if planted and given proper care, would be a source of large income in the years that are to come.
When this organization first came into existence there was a small demand for budded and grafted nut trees, but none were to be had in the hardy northern varieties.
Methods of propagation have been worked out, public opinion has been moulded, government investigation has been fostered, commercial planting of northern nut trees made possible, and today pecans, English walnuts and best varieties of grafted black walnuts may be had in quantity.
This association has caused thousands of nut trees to be planted that would otherwise not have been.
If mounds of earth one foot high are banked around trees before first cold weather it will often prevent bark bursting which may be caused by freezing of the trees when full of sap, caused by late growth.
Nut trees form new rootlets slowly the first summer and require special care.
This effort will bring out varieties that are worthy of propagation and valuable trees will be saved to posterity.
